Nigerian singer, Duncan Mighty has finally opened up on his recent arrest by Imo State Police Command.
A few days ago, Duncan Mighty was rumored to have been kidnapped in Owerri by unknown gunmen.
However, police said that contrary to reports that the singer had been abducted, he was actually picked up by operatives of Imo state command over allegations of fraud.
According to Police, the arrest followed a petition written by an upcoming rap artist M2, who claimed that the Imo state Government led by Owelle Rochas Okorocha, had entered into a deal with DUNCAN MIGHTY to groom his (M2’s) music career, as a result an agreement was reached with a fee of N11,000,000, which was paid to him.
However, since collecting the payment Duncan Mighty refused to fulfill his own part of the deal, which was why police arrested him.
Duncan Mighty has now shared his own side of the story and according to him, he was kidnapped, beaten and harrased despite honouring a phone call from the Imo state government.
The singer also alleged that the police collected $22,000 (N8,030,000) that was given to him while in their detention. He wrote:
