Burna Boy clubbing continues after shooting at Cubana


The popular Cubana nightclub, Victoria Island, Lagos, was practically empty on Wednesday evening, June 15, 2022, when our correspondent visited. However, when reporters paid another visit on Friday, June 17, there were more people there.

Recall that popster, Burna Boy’s police escorts were alleged to have shot and wounded two patrons of the club­ Lawrence and Tolu­  in the early hours of Wednesday, June 8, 2022.

According to reports, the singer was in the VIP section of the club with three women when he spotted another lady. He was said to have told one of his escorts (Ibrahim) to invite the woman to join him.

However, the lady’s husband, who was by her side, was said to have lambasted the singer, insisting that it was disrespectful for any man to make advances at his wife.

“As things were getting heated, Ibrahim brought out his service pistol and shot multiple times while Burna Boy was laughing,” said a senior policeman.

In the process, 27-year-old Lawrence was shot in the thigh while his friend, Tolu, was hit in the head by a bullet. It was learnt that Burna Boy and his crew then immediately left the scene.

Meanwhile, the Inspector General of Police condemned the incident and called for an investigation into the matter.
