Burna Boy is currently in police custody over investigations on the alleged robbery and assault of singer, Mr. 2Kay.
According to Punch, he has started giving statements to the police, as they prepare to make their case against him.
“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,” the newspaper reports.
Burna Boy’s arraignment might also not come up on Monday as planned, noting that investigators wanted to present watertight charges against him before the court.
The newspaper quotes an officer as saying, “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.”
Four suspects, including Burna Boy’s road manager, Joel Kantiok, had been paraded for allegedly robbing Mr. 2Kay on October 22, in his room at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, shortly after “Buckwyld N Breathless” concert held in the facility.
During the parade, the suspects, except Kantiok, confessed to have carried out the attack on the order of Burna Boy.
The assailants had disguised as room service officials to gain entry into the singer’s room.
They reportedly beat him up and dispossessed him of a wristwatch, gold jewellery, phones among other valuables estimated at millions of Naira at gunpoint.
