Nigerian disc jockey, Obinna Levi Ajuonuma, popularly known as DJ Obi, has reacted to the shooting incident Involving police officers attached to popular singer, Burna Boy, at Cubana Nightclub in Victoria Island, Lagos State.
Cubana Club Shooting
KanyiDaily had reported that five policemen attached to the singer were arrested for attempted murder after they shot two fun seekers, Irebami Lawrence and another identified simply as Tolu, at Club Cubana in Lagos on June 8.
It was gathered that the incident happened when Lawrence kicked against Burna Boy’s attempt ‘to move on his wife’, insisting that it was disrespectful for any man to make advances at his wife.
During the heated confrontation, one of Burna Boy’s police escorts identified as Ibrahim was said to have shot Lawrence in the thigh while his friend, Tolu, was hit in the head by a bullet.
Reacting to the allegation, Burna Boy said he was not shocked by the reports linking him to the incident, stressing that even if it was reported on social media that he started Boko Haram, he won’t be surprised.
DJ Obi Backs Burna Boy
On Monday morning, Neme Briella, a UK-based Nigerian lady whose husband was shot while trying to resist Burna Boy’s approach, shared her side of the story.
The lady, who confirmed that Burna Boy made advances on her three times at the club, faulted the singer’s “lack of remorse or accountability” for laughing at the victims while his police escort almost claimed the lives of two people.
She claimed she was physically attacked by the singer’s friend. She also alleged that all through the incident, Burna Boy “laughed and proceeded to his car”.
Reacting on his Twitter page, DJ Obi claimed the married woman lied against Burna Boy, insisting that the singer will never talk to another man’s wife.
He wrote, “The biggest lie of 2022 is when I heard that BURNA BOY tried to talk to another man’s woman. That was where that whole story lost me. There is no woman born of a woman that has that privilege. And not even once but THREE times?! FAT LIE! P/s: Why do you have sooooo many snaps of him before he “tried” to talk to you 3 times???”
“When I heard this story of Odogwu having such high interest in this person, just had to go search for myself to see the woman because she must be the sexiest female on the planet. THREE TIMES?!! I said wow, Unicorns do exists. This babe must be hotter than Steff. So I went digging. BOYYYYYYY! stop playing.
“FYI: Burna security is so highly trained, the only reason a gun would have come out is if there was a threat to his life or theirs. So that leads me to ask, Who threw the first bottle?? And why?
“I end by saying AFTER GOD! Fear woman. Stay safe out there my brothers. If you are ever going to come for someone of this calibre, your story has to be air-tight. And that’s on LOVE DAMINI.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Lagos Police Command had revealed that the two officers involved had been detained, while Burna Boy would be invited and interrogated about the incident.
