Popular Nigerian singer Bnxn formerly known as Buju, has taken back his words stating that he spat in a police officer’s face after the force threatened to bring him to justice.
Bnxn took to his Twitter page to state that he’d not been literal and only meant it as a figure of speech to show that he had been disrespectful to the policeman.
The singer further added that he only wanted to focus on his music and avoid the controversies attached to the incident.
My since deleted tweet stating that I spat in a police officers face was an idiomatic expression to say I disrespected a police officer to his face and not the literal way people may have taken it on social media. I do not support violence or abuse against the police in any form. yesterday I was in a life threatening situation which caused me to lash out due to the physical assault on me by some policemen who have now been brought to book . however , I just want to focus on what’s important to me , my music. Thank you for all the love and concern ❤️
I stood on my right as a responsible Nigerian, despite the violence against my person and I do not want my deleted tweet to be taken seriously.
I appreciate the swift intervention of some reputable police officers on this matter too. Love❤️
