A drama played out at the Ikeja Magistrate’s Court, Lagos State, on Monday as the embattled hip hop artiste, Damini Ogulu, aka Burna Boy, was arraigned.

The suspect was brought into the courtroom by the Investigating Police Officer, Sergeant Olagunju Olatunji, when the court was about to sit and was whisked away in a sport utility vehicle immediately after his arraignment.

He swiftly entered into the waiting SUV, Lexus 300RX with number plate, AAA 473 DB, in company with some policemen in mufti and was escorted from the court premises to an unidentified location.

The 26-year-old singer was dressed in jeans and shirt, wearing jewellery and glasses.

Burna Boy, who was arrested for alleged involvement in the robbery of his colleague, Abiye Jumbo, popularly called Mr. 2kay, was arraigned on two counts of “accessory to after fact and failing to give information to the police on the attack.

He had been declared wanted by the state Commissioner of Police, Edgal Imohimi, on November 20, but he later appeared at the command on Friday.

He was promptly detained in the custody of the Special Anti-Robbery Squad in Ikeja.

Four suspects, including Burna Boy’s road manager, Joel Kantiok, had been paraded for allegedly robbing Mr. 2Kay on October 22 in his room at the Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, shortly after ‘Buckwyld N Breathless’ concert held in the facility.

During the parade, the suspects, except Kantiok, confessed to have carried out the attack on the orders of Burna Boy.

Burna Boy was granted bail Monday in the sum of N100,000 with two sureties in like sum, and the case adjourned till December 29.

However, as against the tradition of keeping defendants on the court premises pending when bail conditions would be perfected, Burna Boy was immediately taken away in the SUV by the police.
