The errant police officers will face consequences for their unprofessional behavior, according to the State PPRO, Ben Hundeyin.
The spokesman said; ‘‘@BNXN proudly tweeted that he ‘spat in [sic] a police officer’s face and it felt so good.’ He has since deleted the tweet.
The police officers will be sanctioned for their misbehavior if established, while @BNXN will surely answer for his assault on a police officer.”
Buju took to his Twitter page to explain what he meant by his then deleted tweet about spatting on a policeman’s face.
”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”.
