Robbery Allegation: Burna Boy Having Fun, Other Suspects Languish in Prison
Reggae-dance-hall singer, Burna Boy while awaiting his acquittal in the robbery and physical assault allegation against him by fellow musician, Mr. 2Kay’s, has been having fun abroad, at the expense of other suspects, including his road manager, Joel Kantiock.
The ‘Yawa Dey’ singer has been having “fun” abroad while his road manager, Joel Kantiock, and three other suspects languish in prison pending the continuation of their trial.
In a video posted on his IG page, Burna Boy was seen on stage ushering the ecstatic foreign fans into the New Year amidst jubilation and dancing, which he captioned “Had fun bringing in the New Year in Ethiopia.”
Citybuzz Extra recall that he was arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court by Lagos State Police Command on a count-charge, bordering on ‘accessory after the fact’ and ‘conspiracy’ brought against him, to which he pleaded not guilty.
Burna was granted a hundred thousand naira bail with two responsible sureties while the matter was adjourned and he has since been going about his business like nothing is at stake.
The four arrested suspects, including Burna’s road manager, Joel Kantiock, Balogun Ademola, Obinna Igwe and Tunmise Omotore, were arraigned in court and subsequently detained pending the conclusion of police investigations.
