Police in Imo have said that musician, Duncan Mighty, was arrested on Saturday over allegation of fraud.
The Port Harcourt-based singer was initially rumoured to have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.
However, Imo police spokesman, Godson Ikeokwu, said in a statement that Duncan Mighty was arrested following allegation of fraud.
“This 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, enter into a deal with Duncan Mighty to manage, promote, arrange collaboration with other top artiste and sign M2 under YOUNG WEALTH record label owned by Duncan Mighty, as a result an agreement was reached with a fee of ELEVEN MILLION NAIRA (N11,000,000) was paid to him, However, since collecting the payment he refused to fulfill his own part of the deal,” the statement said.
Duncan had in October raised alarm that his life was under threat over the deal.
The police spokesman, however, added: “Sequel to the petition, the artiste was arrested, and he affirmed the having such agreement and collecting the fund, but said he can only refund the money if the contract is terminated, he was then released on bail on self recognizance.
“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.
“In view of the above, a warrant of arrest was issued, that led to his arrest at the early hours of this morning.”
Regina Daniels’ father reconciles with daughter, son-in-law, gives reasons
Jude Ojeogwu, Father of Nollywood actress, Regina Daniels, has said that he decided to reconcile with her daughter’s billionaire husband, Ned Nwoko, following the birth of his grandson.
Regina Daniels recently gave birth to a baby boy, her first child for politician husband, Nwoko.
Barrister Ojegwu had staunchly opposed the marriage of the then 20-year old actress to the business mogul.
At the baby’s naming ceremony, held in Abuja yesterday evening, Ojeogwu told journalists that the birth of the baby made him reconcile with his billionaire son-in-law for the sake of peace, joy, and happiness.
Nwoko and Regina named their son Munir at the ceremony where Ojeogwu insisted that the birth of the new baby made him change his mind about Nwoko.
“The birth of this child has answered the question (about the controversy); everybody craves for peace, joy, and happiness. I have accepted everything,” he said.
“I feel very happy having a grandchild and that is why I am here. I traveled all the way from Lagos to this place just to celebrate with the family.
“I told him (Nwoko) and the mother to call him Ifechukwude which means what God has written.”

After the post went viral, it was reported that Child Rights International petitioned the CID to act over the matter since Akuapem Poloo had violated some laws and also breached some Child Acts.
Rosemond Brown took down the post and apologized to the general public over the post.
After she celebrated her son’s birthday, she made a self-recorded video with her son in which they both apologized to the public over the issue.
However, the authorities would have none of that as she has been taken to DOVVSU’s headquarters in Accra for questioning.
