The singer was said to have unfollowed his logistics manager even though the post has been deleted from his Instastories as at the filing of this report.

Cutie wrote: “Exclusive 100-% confirmed information reaching our hub is that Nigerian sensational musician, Davido has sacked his logistics manager, Israel DMW with immediate effect.

“Anyone who does business with him should note that Whatever business they engage in has nothing to do with Mr David Adeleke or the “DAVIDO” brand. Thank you”
How Hushpuppi Bribed Abba Kyari In $1.1 Million Deal
KanyiDaily had reported how Hushpuppi confessed to bribing Kyari to have one of his rivals, Kelly Chibuzor Vincent, arrested and jailed in Nigeria following a dispute over the $1.1 million fraud that victimized a businessman in Qatar.
According to court documents, Hushpuppi allegedly conspired with five others – including Vincent – to defraud the Qatari businessman by claiming to be consultants and bankers who could facilitate a loan to finance the construction of a school.
Following the deal, Hushpuppi asked Kyari to arrest and jail Vincent after both were locked in a dispute presumably over how to share the proceeds from the fraud.
This was after Vincent contacted the Qatari businessman and informed him that he was being scammed by a fraud syndicate involving him and Hushpuppi.
Abba Kyari was said to have sent pictures of Vincent in jail and subsequently sent his bank account number to Hushpuppi to which a wire transfer was sent to him by the fraudster.
Fani-Kayode Defends DCP Abba Kyari
A Former Minister of Aviation, Femi Fani-Kayode had also thrown his weight behind Abba Kyari in the bribery allegations leveled against him by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
In series of posts shared on his Twitter page, Fani-Kayode insisted that unless he sees a prove he will never believe the lies against Kyari, who he described as “one of the bravest, brightest and best cops in Nigeria.”
Noting that there is a deep conspiracy to destroy the career and the excellent service of Kyari, the former minister backed the embattled DCP to come out clean from the allegations of fraud leveled against him by Hushpuppi.
