LAGOS, Nigeria (VOICE OF NAIJA)- Lagos police spokesperson, Benjamin Hundeyin, has reacted to singer ‘BNXN’ saying he spat on a police officer during a confrontation captured on video earlier on Wednesday, 17 August.
The Afro-fusion singer whose real name is Daniel Benson, caused a big stir on social media after he was involved in an altercation with the police.
He became a trending topic online after a series of videos of him and the policemen fighting on a Lagos road was captured by fans who recognised him.
In one of the clips, the singer’s Benz was surrounded by the armed men while Buju was seen looking disheveled in just his singlet and trousers.
In a series of now deleted tweets, the Kilometre crooner took to his page to explain his side of events.
According to him, he let a police officer in his car but the personnel proceeded to tear his shirt and slap him.
In another post, Buju revealed that he spat in an officer’s face and it felt so good to do so.
SP Hundeyin who acknowledged the now-deleted tweet, said while the police officers will be sanctioned for their misbehavior if established, Buju on the other hand “will surely answer for his assault on a police officer”.
He tweeted; “@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.”
