It appears the video that surfaced online of Burna Boy’s arrest alongside his dad on Sunday morning is false.
Netng has confirmed from Lagos Police that they do not have the Grammy-nominated artiste in their custody.
We reached out to the Lagos State Police PRO, DSP Bala Elkana, to confirm whether or not Burna Boy had been arrested.
He debunked this information and clearly stated that Burna Boy had not been arrested yesterday as the reports online claim.
“They just recycled an old story. There was something that happened a very long time ago and it was resolved then. It’s not a recent event… But we don’t have him in our custody. He wasn’t arrested yesterday, we don’t even have complaints against him from yesterday.”
“We don’t have such a case as reported online now. The reports online claim that he was arrested yesterday by our men but it’s not true. We don’t have such reports. That is my confirmation.”
There’s been no word from Burna Boy or his team regarding the news.
