Police Declare Burna Boy Wanted Over Mr 2Kay's Robbery Incident
The robbery incident involving Abiye Jumbo aka Mr 2Kay at the Eko Hotel and Suites on Victoria Island, has taken a new twist.
The Lagos State Police Command has advised the reggae-dance-hall singer, Damini Ogulu, popularly known as Burna Boy to turn himself in.
The state Acting Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, said on Monday that the artiste had a question to answer on the robbery of his colleague, Abiye Jumbo aka Mr 2Kay.
Mr 2Kay was attacked by a gang on October 22, 2017 in his room at Eko Hotel and Suites on Victoria Island after a show organised by Buckwyld Media Network Limited.
The robbers punched and hit Mr 2Kay after he tried to fight them off, and only calmed down after they threatened to shoot him.
The robbers tied the singer’s arms, legs and mouth and took his valuables including jewelry, clothes, perfumes, phones and money valued at 12 million Naira.
While parading four suspects arrested for the robbery at the command headquarters in Ikeja, Imohimi said, "I advise one Damini Ogulu aka Burna Boy to report himself at the nearest police station since all effort to locate him has proved abortive.
"During interrogation, the robbers confessed that they were hired by Burna Boy through his manager, Joel Kantiock, who was arrested in Zaria, Kaduna State
"They confessed to receiving a part payment of 50,000 Naira before the job and another 50,000 Naira was paid to the robbers directly by Burna Boy when the job was done".
