The married woman identified simply as Briella, whose husband was shot by singer Burna Boy’s police escort has finally spoken about the ugly incident.
Empire Africa earlier reported that the Lagos State Police Commissioner’s Special Squad detained five policemen attached to Burna Boy for attempted murder after they shot two clubbers, Lawrence Irebami, the husband of the woman Burna Boy allegedly made sexual advances to and another identified simply as Tolu at Club Cubana on Victoria Island, Lagos.
Speaking on the unfortunate incident, Briella in an Instagram post stated that she is still traumatised over the event and her husband and his best friend are still healing from the wounds inflicted on them.
Briella shared her side of the story, narrating how she was accosted three times by Burna Boy’s men requesting her to meet him.
“On the first attempt I told them I wasn’t interested in talking to Burna Boy and I am married to my partner. He came again the second time and was met with the same response, he came the third time and that caused a few of our friends to flare up as they asked why he kept coming to disturb me,” she recounted.
She said this led to a fight between her friends and Burna Boys’ team. However, it was briefly resolved by the security personnel at the club.
Things took a different turn when Burna Boy’s escorts started a fight again and started shooting. She alleged that Burna Boy gave the green light to his security to start shooting at them in the club while he laughed about it.
Briella stated that within a split second there was chaos in the club and her partner was grazed by a bullet in the head, while his friend got shot in the thigh.
The woman also said it took the owner of the nightclub, Obi Cubana four days to reach out to them after the shooting, claiming he had no idea about it. She also said that the club couldn’t provide a CCTV footage or a statement of the ugly incident.
Burna Boy had been declared wanted by the Lagos State Police command. The police command stated that the singer has become a fugitive and was under criminal investigation. The police have already alerted INTERPOL to track his movement.
Reacting to the lady’s account of the incident, Nollywood actress, Yetunde Bakare stated, “So they wanted to kill the girl and her partner for refusing the advances of their mini-God??? They need to be locked away for real. It’ll be better to SUE if you can afford a GOOD LAWYER”.
