12 years after his death, Nigerian rapper, Oladapo Olaitan Olaonipekun popularly known as Dagrin has been declared wanted in Sierra Leone.
Naija News recalls that Dagrin died from complications arising from injuries he sustained in a ghastly motor accident.
His car collided with a stationary trailer in front of Alakara Police Station, around 3am at Mushin in Lagos.
The rapper died at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, on Wednesday, 22nd April 2010 at the age of 26 and was buried on Friday, 30th April at the Ebony Millennium Private Vault, Atan Cemetery.
However, a surprising scenario seems to be playing out in Sierra Leone following photos of those who allegedly participated in a violent protest, which the police in the country released.
According to LIB, Sierra Leone Police released photos of those who allegedly took part in a violent protest last week and the late Dagrin photo is on the list.
Similarly, a Twitter user @Jeen_Yous who resides in Sierra Leone also shared the poster on the micro-blogging platform.
The tweet reads: ”The Sierra Leone Police release Pictures of wanted people who were part of the violent protest last week and late Nigerian rapper Dagrin is one of them. This country will always amaze me”
I Disrespected A Police Officer To His Face
Nigerian singer, Daniel Benson, popularly known as BNXN, has spoken about his altercation with the Nigerian police.
BNXN, formerly known as Buju, had earlier on Twitter stated that he had spat on some police officers.
A viral video on social media showed the artiste engaging in a brawl with some security personnel in the Ikeja area of Lagos state.
Following the tweet from the musician, the Lagos State police command said it will sanction him for assaulting an officer of the law.
The State PPRO, Ben Hundeyin stated that if the police officers were found guilty of any misappropriate behaviour they would also be sanctioned.
Shedding more light on the incident, BNXN took to Twitter to explain that his now-deleted tweet was a figurative expression.
According to the music star, he meant that he was only standing his ground as a responsible Nigerian.
He tweeted; ”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.”
