A preliminary report by the Bar Beach Police Division of the are admitted the incident took place on June 8, at about 4 AM.
Eye witness reports say the altercation started when Burna Boy who was present at the VIP section of the club invited a clubber’s wife over to party with him, and angered the husband of the said woman in the process.

In the process, 27-year-old Lawrence was shot in the thigh while Tolu narrowly escaped a bullet to the head with a scratch.
“Aware of what he had done, Burna Boy took the next flight out without even informing the policemen. He only made a video call to them to inform them that he had travelled to Spain. All his police escorts have been arrested and are currently at the Command headquarters,” said a top source at the office of the Lagos State Commissioner of Police.
