Burna Boy might be in for a long while if he is found guilty of the allegations made by the police.
According to the police, Burna Boy masterminded the attack on Mr 2Kay in his room at Eko Hotels & Suites.
Burna Boy has not yet honoured the invitation of the police for questioning even though the singer’s rep put out a statement yesterday claiming the opposite.
If Burna Boy is officially charged with robbery and found guilty in the court of law, he could serve up to 21 years in prison.
“According to the Lagos State Criminal Law 2011. Sections 294 and 295, anyone who steals anything and uses threat of force or actual force to ensure that, he is said to be guilty of robbery. And shall be sent to jail for a period not less than 21 years” Akinyemi Ayinoluwa, a lawyer of High Tower Lawyers.
“It appears Burna was not at the venue at all. But the law in Section 297 deals with conspiracy to commit the offence. That means if you gave information, or mobilised, made payment or facilitated the act, you are guilty of the principal offence as those who committed the actual offence” he further says.
No official charges have been pressed yet and the Nigerian Police is still investigating the claims made by the suspects that they were contracted by Burna Boy and his road manager to assault Mr 2Kay.
