Buju Banton had a meeting with Trinidad and Tobago’s Commissioner of Police, Gary Griffith on Saturday shortly after cops raided his hotel room.
The “Untold Stories” singer posted a now-viral video on Instagram Saturday afternoon revealing that members of the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service (TTPS) came to search his hotel room after allegedly obtaining a search warrant.
“I’m chilling in my hotel room and the cops came to check me, a whole bunch of them saying they got a warrant to search my room and all kind of stuff,” Buju Banton said in a video uploaded to his IG account.
“I just want you to know that no matter what they can’t break us, we see whats going on and we just want you to know whats going on… We see what they are planning, how can you obtain a search warrant for a hotel room on a Saturday?” The Grammy-winning entertainer asked.
Shortly after the video began to make rounds on social media, Griffith visited the Reggae superstar and issued an apology, he also assured the entertainer that a full investigation will be launched into the incident.
“After viral posting, the Trinidadian Commissioner of Police and Representative of the Jamaican consulate paid me a visit to issue an apology on behalf of the Trinidadian Police Department,” Banton wrote following the meeting. “I will not let this issue affect my love for the Trinidadian people or me as I move forward to have a wonderful night tomorrow. Trini we’re still on track love to my Trini family.”
