The Lagos state police command has refuted claims by Burna Boy's management that he has honored the police investigation issued on Monday. 

Recall that the Lagos State Police commissioner, Edgal Imohimi, at a press conference in the command headquarters yesterday, said that Burna Boy is a person of interest in the on-going investigation into Mr 2kay's robbery attack at Eko Hotel last month. The commissioner publicly announced that Burna Boy should immediately report to the nearest police station for questioning as he has been named by arrested suspects as the mastermind of the alleged crime. 

Reacting to the news, Burna Boy's management released a statement Tuesday evening claiming that he has honored the police invitation. Part of the statement reads

'The first and only invitation Burna Boy has ever received from the police was issued yesterday November 20th, 2017. This invitation was honored yesterday November 20th, 2017 and it has been made clear that he is happy to cooperate with the police as best as he can. It is pertinent to note that he was never served an arrest warrant nor has he been declared wanted'

Public Relations Officer of the command, Olarinde Famous-Cole, responded by saying that it was only Burna Boy's father, Samuel Ogulu, that came to the station yesterday after the press conference with claims that he, Burna Boy, is not in the country and that as soon as he arrives Nigeria, he would come to the command's headquarters. 

According to the PRO, that the state police command believes that Burna Boy is currently on the run and that they do not believe his father's claim that he is out of the country.
