Burna Boy, dancehall artiste born Damini Ogulu, turned himself in for questioning by the Lagos state police command on Friday.
He had been named in connection with a robbery attack on Mr 2Kay, a fellow artiste.
The robbery took place at EKO Hotel and Suites in Lagos after 2baba Idibia’s Buckwyld & Breathless concert.
According to a statement signed by Chike Oti, police public relations officer, Lagos police command, after honouring the invitation, Burna Boy was subsequently arrested, interrogated and detained.
He is expected to be charged to court on Monday alongside four of members of the gang who were earlier arrested.
Imohimi Edgal, commissioner of police, said the command has zero tolerance for all forms of crime and would not hesitate to prosecute anyone found culpable in any criminal offence perpetrated in the state.
“There would be no sacred cows. This command is poised to ensure that every resident can feel safe wherever they are and carry out their businesses without fear or favour.
“Anyone therefore found to be involved in this case would be made to face the law to clear his or her name or face prosecution.”
Tunmise Omotore, gang leader of the suspected robbers, had confessed to how they disguised as room service personnel to rob Mr. 2kay at the behest of Joel Kantiock, Burna Boy’s road manager.
