Since reportedly turning himself in, Burna Boy has been held in the custody of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad, Lagos State Command, where he has spent two days with criminals held in a SARS cell for offences ranging from robbery to theft.
He is being investigated for conspiracy in the robbery of his colleague, Abiye Jumbo aka Mr. 2Kay.
Burna Boy, who was declared wanted by the State Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, on November 20, was apprehended on Friday and detained.
A police source told Punchng that the singer was still making statements to detectives, noting that, “He is currently in the SARS custody and he is helping the police in the investigation. For now, I can’t say categorically what his charges will be but definitely they are related to robbery for which the other suspects were arraigned.”
Another police officer, who is privy to the case, said Burna Boy’s arraignment might not come up on Monday as planned, noting that investigators wanted to present watertight charges against him before the court.
The officer said, “His statements are still being taken and there are more revelations. We don’t want to rush to court with charges that will be struck out for lack of evidence. The essence of prosecution is to secure a conviction at the end of the day. That is what we want to ensure.”
