recall2 that Thursday that BNXN, formerly known as Buju, said he spat on an officer who assaulted him by tearing his clothe and slapping him.
A video which circulated online showed when the artiste was engaging in a public brawl with security personnel in Ikeja area of the state.
Meanwhile Following the incident, the Lagos State police command said it will sanction him for assaulting a officer of the law.
He, however, said that the ‘Confident’ singer would face the consequences of assaulting an officer of the Nigeria Police Force.
The spokesman said; ‘‘@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.”
BNXN, however, Taking to his Twitter account, explained that his now-deleted comment about spitting in an officer’s face was a figurative expression.
According to the music star, he meant that he was only standing his ground as a responsible Nigerian.
He tweeted; ”My since deleted tweet stating that I spat in a police officers face was an idiomatic expression to say I disrespected a police officer to his face and not the literal way people may have taken it on social media. I do not support violence or abuse against the police in any form.
Yesterday I was in a life threatening situation which caused me to lash out due to the physical assault on me by some policemen who have now been brought to book . however , I just want to focus on what’s important to me , my music. Thank you for all the love and concern
I stood on my right as a responsible Nigerian, despite the violence against my person and I do not want my deleted tweet to be taken seriously. I appreciate the swift intervention of some reputable police officers on this matter too. Love”.
