Socialite and club owner, Obi Cubana, has finally opened up on an alleged shooting involving Grammy award-winning singer, Burna Boy and two other persons at his club.
Recall that Burna Boy made headlines a week ago after police attached to him for his personal security were accused of shooting and wounding two persons at Cubana club in Victoria Island, Lagos, in the early hours of Wednesday June 8, 2022.
The Lagos State Police Commissioner’s Special Squad had detained five policemen attached to Burna Boy for attempted murder after they reportedly shot two clubbers – Lawrence Irebami, the husband of the woman who was said to have turned down Burna Boy’s advances and another identified simply as Tolu.
Obi Cubana took to his Instagram handle to write: “As regards the issues making rounds the social media, we at Cubana Group have given all information at our disposal to the legal authorities.
“However, we wholeheartedly sympathise with any/all those who may have been impacted by this. Myself (sic) and our group would never compromise standards, as we have confidence in the authorities to handle all. Best Regards.”
Also reacting to the incident, Disc jockey DJ Switch, condemned Burna Boy’s reaction to the club shooting.
According to her, “As an African giant, you wield power and influence and so your attitude towards the incident is sad and condemnable. We must act better to deserve better. The police should investigate thoroughly (if they are capable) @burnaboy.”
One of the victims’ wife, identified as Briella, had on Sunday said that the incident left her traumatised, adding that her husband and his best friend were still recovering from the wounds inflicted on them.
In what seemed like a response to Briella’s account of the incident, Burna Boy, who reportedly jetted out of the country, ostensibly to avoid questioning, tweeted: “The Nigerian social media can say Burna Boy started Boko haram, e no go shock me,” he tweeted.
