‘I was in life-threatening situation’ – Buju denies assaulting police officer

Popular Nigerian singer, BNXN, formerly known as Buju, on Thursday, denied spitting on a police officer’s face.

Fresh reporters had reported earlier a tweet from the singer stating he spat on a police officer after an encounter in Lagos State.

This got the attention of the Lagos State Police Command, who assured that Buju will be punished if he’s found guilty of assaulting a police officer.

However, the singer in a thread on Thursday, explaining his now deleted tweet, said he does not support assaulting an officer of the law.

“My since deleted tweet stating that I spat in [sic] a police officer’s 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 don’t support violence or abuse against the police in any form.”
