Security Guards At Venue Of Nigerian Asake’s UK Concert Regularly Took Bribes – Whistleblower Reports

A whistleblower on Tuesday alleged that some security guards at the O2 Brixton Academy in London, UK regularly accepted bribes to allow people into shows without tickets.

O2 Brixton Academy was the venue of Asake, a fast-rising Nigerian Artiste, in London, where there was a crush leading to the death of two persons and injuries for others in last December 2022.

It was reported that ticketless fans and supporters attempted to breach the gates, resulting to a crush forcing the sold-out show to come to a halt halfway.
