Olarinde Famous-Cole, police public relations officer, has said Burna Boy is yet to honour the invitation sent to him over a recent robbery attack on his colleague, Mr 2Kay.
Burna Boy, real names Damini Ogulu, was accused of being complicit in the incident.
Edgal Imohimi, Lagos state commissioner of police, had on Monday asked the artiste to report at the police station over the allegations levelled against him.
The police claimed the suspects in the robbery said they were acting at the behest of Burna Boy’s road manager, Joel Kontiock.
The reggae-dancehall singer later released a statement via his Twitter page on Tuesday, saying he didn’t rob Mr 2Kay and denied being declared wanted by the police.
The police, however, have maintained their stance that the ‘Deja vu’ singer hasn’t shown up as invited.
“The Lagos State Police Command would like to inform members of the public that Damini Ogulu a.k.a ‘Burna Boy’ is YET to report himself to the police and still on the run contrary to reports making rounds on the internet that the musician has honoured police invitation,” said Famous-Cole.
“The command would also like to inform the public that only Burna Boy’s father, one Samuel Ogulu visited the Investigating Police Officer (IPO) in-charge of the case with the promise to bring Burna Boy before the police.
“The Command, however, uses this medium to urge Burna Boy’s father and relatives to do right by bringing the musician and turning him into the police before the long arm of the law catches up with him. The command assures that justice will be done.”
Burna Boy’s management said the artiste has nothing to do with the robbery incident when contacted by TheCable Lifestyle on Wednesday morning.
