The Nigerian police has revealed the reason for allowing singer Bnxn’s alleged assault on an officer to be laid to rest.
According to Lagos P.R.O Ben Hundeyin, the singer had pleaded with the force to allow him restate his position and explain that his earlier tweets had not been literal when he said he’d spat in the face of an officer.
Hundeyin who replied via his Twitter stated that the force was committed to ending unprofessional conduct from police officers and upholding rule of law.
All the police officers involved in this case, serving at Area F Ikeja, were identified and invited to the headquarters for 1100hrs today. @BNXN was equally requested to report at the headquarters same time, which he promptly agreed to. However, at about 1230hrs today,
@BNXN called to explain that he was indisposed and requested more time. Furthermore, he was apologetic and regretted the wrong signal his deleted tweet sent to his teeming followers and people in general. He, therefore, pleaded to correct the ‘misconception’ and firmly take
a stand against assault on police officers. He was given that concession. All said and done, @LagosPoliceNG under the leadership of CP Abiodun Alabi, fdc totally stands against all forms of unprofessional conduct by its officers; and encourages every aggrieved persons to duly report such appropriately to enable quick needful action.
Meanwhile, Bnxn fka Buju has since retracted his statement and apologized to his fans for the misconception.
