BNXN: My comment on ‘spitting on police officer’s face’ taken out of context

Nigerian singer, BNXN, has clarified his controversial tweet wherein he claimed he spitted on a police officer’s face.

The singer, formerly known as BNXN, was at the receiving end of a heated backlash on Thursday after he wrote: “spat at a police officer’s face and it felt so good.”

Benjamin Hundeyin, the Lagos police spokesperson, had tackled him over the tweet and vowed the 25-year-old “must surely answer for his alleged assault on a police officer”.

Reacting to the development via his Twitter page, the singer formerly known as Buju, said his tweet was taken out of context.

The musician said his action does not endorse violence against policemen as claimed in some quarters.

“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,” he wrote.

“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.”
