Singer Bnxn, previously known as Buju, has denied spitting in a police officer\’s face.
On Wednesday, August 17, he took to Twitter to boast about spitting in a police officer\’s face during a road rage incident which was captured on video.
He later deleted the tweet.
However, Lagos State Police Command PRO, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, got a screengrab of the deleted tweet and said Bnxn will \”surely answer for his assault on a police officer\”.
Bnxn has now taken to Twitter to deny spitting on an officer.
He tweeted: \”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.\”
