Buju Engages In Messy Fight With Police That Stopped His Benz In Ikeja
Nigerian singer, BNXN, formerly known as Buju, has been involved in an altercation with men of the Nigeria Police Force.
A video circulating online shows the moment he was having a confrontation with some officers that stopped his car in Ikeja, Lagos state.
BNXN was wearing a white singlet after his clothe had allegedly been torn during a tussle with one of the policeman who entered his Benz.
A passer-by recorded the moment the artiste, his friend and the security agents were charging at each other on a busy road.
The ‘Lenu’ crooner, in a now-deleted tweet, revealed that he spat in the officer’s face after the personnel dragged his clothe, tore it and slapped him.
