A Facebook user identified as Ndubueze Obodowhuo said the incident happened on Saturday at about 9:40 am when the tanker driver was on duty.
Narrating his ordeal after he was allegedly discharged from the hospital on Tuesday, the driver claimed that the musician struck him on the head with a traditional staff made of elephant tusk simply because he tried notifying him to wind down his car.
Obodowhuo also accused Duncan Mighty of using his VIP status to intimidate his people. He also shared a ‘medical report’ stating that John was treated for “shoulder dislocation and a scalp laceration.”
Mr John is now calling on his employer, the management of Julius Berger, Security Agencies and Human Rights Organisations to help him get justice.
“This is Mr OKABAM JOHN a native of Elele town in Ikwerre LGA of Rivers State, he’s currently employed by JULIUS BERGER NIG.PLC in Port Harcourt and his service engagement is within Judges quarters elelenwo-street, GRA Port Harcourt.
“According to Mr OKABAM JOHN, a Water-tank driver with Julius Berger, Tanker number – B8751, On Saturday 21st of November 2020 at about 9:40 am while he was on duty. A private car was parked close to his water filling spot, he tried notifying the driver who refused to wine down, he bent his head to talk with the driver surprisingly, it was Duncan mighty.
“Before he could explain, his head was struck by Duncan mighty using a traditional staff(Elephant tusk), the second strike was blocked with his hand. He(Okabam John) didn’t see how the artist drove off because blood covered his eyes at that moment.
“Mr Okabam John narrated this incident after being discharged from the hospital. Duncan doesn’t show up when he’s publicly needed, rather he uses his VIP influence to undo his people. Celebrities should be celebrated by their positivity, their influence shouldn’t pose danger to the society rather it should serve as liberation to the people.
“Mr OKABAM JOHN is calling on the management of Julius Berger, Security Agents and Human Rights Organisations for justice to be done in his case, to avoid a re-occurrence. Thanks, OKABAM JOHN 08036614559.”
Duncan Mighty is yet to react to the accusation levelled against him at the time of filing this report.
KanyiDaily recalls that some months ago, Duncan Mighty narrated how some police officers beat him up and stole his $22,000 while in their custody in Imo State.
