Lagos State Police Command has detained its personnel identified in the shooting at Club Cubana in the Victoria Island area of Lagos State.

The incident took place on June 8, 2022 when four Policemen attached to Singer Damini Ogulu, alias Burna boy went to Club Cubana.

On arrival at the Club at about 4.am, a Policeman who is identified as Inspector Ibrahim, in mufti, accompanied the Grammy-Award-winning artiste into the club, while three others waited outside.

According to multiple witness statements, the singer was in the VIP section with three women when he spotted another woman.

The Police personnel have been taken into custody and are being investigated for their involvement.

This was revealed on Monday by the Lagos Force PRO, Oluwamuyiwa Adejobi in a statement made available to newsmen.

The policemen attached to singer, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, were arrested for attempted murder after they shot two fun seekers— Irebami Lawrence and another identified simply as Tolu— at Club Cubana on Victoria Island, Lagos, on Wednesday.

According to a preliminary report by the Bar Beach Police Division, trouble started when the singer and five police escorts visited the nightclub around 4am on June 8.

He was reported to have told Ibrahim to invite the woman to join him.

However, the lady’s husband was said to have lambasted the singer, insisting that it was disrespectful for any man to make advances at his wife.

This infuriated her husband further and his friends who had gathered at the club.

“As things were getting heated, Ibrahim brought out his service pistol and shot multiple times while Burna Boy was laughing,” said a senior policeman.

In the process, 27-year-old Lawrence was shot in the thigh while his friend, Tolu, was hit in the head by a bullet. This caused a commotion in the club.

It was learnt that Burna Boy and his crew then drove off to one of his properties at the Elegushi end of the Lekki-Epe Expressway before leaving for Lekki Phase 1.

“Aware of what he had done, Burna Boy took the next flight out without even informing the policemen. He only made a video call to them to inform them that he had travelled to Spain. All his police escorts have been arrested and are currently at the Command headquarters,” said a top source at the office of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police.

However, Adejobi said the Inspector-General of Police, Usman Alkali Baba described the circumstances surrounding the incident as unbelievable.

He also condemned, in the strongest terms, the unfortunate incident.

Consequently, the IGP has directed the Commissioner of Police, Lagos State, CP Abiodun Alabi, to carry out a thorough investigation into the matter and forward his report as urgent as possible for further action.
