Imohimi Edgal, Lagos State Commissioner of Police, has demanded that Damini Ogulu, a dancehall artiste famously known as Burna Boy to present himself to the Police for interrogation for allegedly attacking another musician, Abiye Jombo, who is also known as Mr 2Kay.
Mr 2Kay alleged that he was robbed armed men who carted away his valuables, which include a gold wristwatch, jewellery and phones, in Room 847 on the eighth floor of EKO Hotel & Suites during the Buckwyld & Breathless concert.
According to Edgal, “Four armed robbers carried out the attack and detectives were able to arrest one of their girlfriends, identified as Matejero, which led to the capture of the others”.
“The suspects apprehended by the Police reportedly mentioned Burna Boy and his manager, Joel Kantiock, who was arrested in Zaria, Kaduna State”. “According to them, they received a part payment of N50,000 before the job, and another N50,000 after the job was completed”.
The Police Commissioner speaking further said, “I am using this medium to advise Damini Ogulu a.k.a. Burna Boy, to report at the nearest Police Station as all efforts to locate him at his Lekki residence proved abortive”.
Edgal narrated how the robbery occurred, he said, “On October 22, after a show organised by Buckwild Media, one Jombo, who lodged at Eko Hotel, had returned to his room after his performance when he heard a knock on the door”.
“The voice had introduced himself as room service and when Jombo opened the door, four men gained entrance into the room, dispossessed him of valuables worth N11 million and tied up the musician and his girlfriend”.
The Commissioner added that “During interrogation, which involved probing the CCTV camera, a girlfriend of one of the hotel workers was arrested”.
“She then led the Police to arrest three others suspects, including Burna Boy’s Road Manager.” Burna Boy is yet to submit himself for questioning, but his Road Manager, who was also arrested by the Police, claimed that he had not met with any of the suspects”, Edgal said.
