The Imo State Police command has said that contrary to reports that a popular musician in the state, Duncan Mighty, had been abducted, he was actually picked up by operatives of the command over allegations of fraud.
According to the Police Public Relations Officer, SP Orlando Ikeokwu, said he was arrested for defrauding a former governor of Imo state, Rochas Okorocha of N11 million.
The arrest followed a petition written by an upcoming rap artist M2, who claimed that the Imo state Government led by Owelle Rochas Okorocha, through the office of the SA on Entertainment had entered into a deal with Duncan Mighty to manage, promote, arrange collaboration with other top artist and sign M2 under Young Wealth record label owned by Duncan Mighty, as a result an agreement was reached with a fee of N11,000,000, which was paid to him.
Ikeokwu said However, since collecting the payment, he refused to fulfill his own part of the deal.
He was then released on bail on self recognition. “Consequently, a letter was received by the representative of the former Governor, terminating the contract to enable him refund the money and since then, he absconded and all efforts made to reach him proved abortive.
