The Lagos State police command has asked Nigerian singer BNXN formerly Buju for questioning after spitting on a police official.
The command’s spokesman, Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the development via his official Twitter handle yesterday, 18 August 2022.
He wrote: “@BNXN proudly tweeted that he ‘spat in [sic] a police officer’s face and it felt so good. He has since deleted the tweet. The police officers will be sanctioned for their misbehavior if established, while @BNXN will surely answer for his assault on a police officer.”
Buju had previously shared a tweet where he boasted about spitting on the officer.
“Spat on the police officer’s face and it felt good,” he had written on his Twitter page.
He later took down the tweet. A video of Buju arguing with police officers surfaced on social media Wednesday.
However, the cause of the heated altercation between the artiste and the police officers has not been verified as of the time of this report.
