Nigerian singer, Buju aka Bnxn has taken to social media to clear the air following claims of assaulting a police officer during a heated argument.
The singer took to social media where he revealed he had an alteration with some police officers.
“Spat on the police officer’s face and it felt good,” he wrote in a now-deleted tweet.
His tweet however did not sit well with some social media users as they opined that it was not right to disrespect an officer in uniform.
Clarifying his statement in a new tweet, Bnxn affirmed that it was a figure of speech rather that a literal statement.
“My since deleted tweet stating that I spat in a police officers face was an idiomatic expression to say I disrespected a police officer to his face and not the literal way people may have taken it on social media. I do not support violence or abuse against the police in any form.
yesterday I was in a life threatening situation which caused me to lash out due to the physical assault on me by some policemen who have now been brought to book . however , I just want to focus on what’s important to me , my music. Thank you for all the love and concern ❤️
I stood on my right as a responsible Nigerian, despite the violence against my person and I do not want my deleted tweet to be taken seriously.
I appreciate the swift intervention of some reputable police officers on this matter too. Love❤️.”
