It’s been quite a rough first half of the year 2016 for Nigerian celebrities as scandals and controversies have clouded most of them.
The Lagos state police command stormed the Muson Centre, Onikan, to arrest Oritse Femi’s former manager, Yusuf Adepitan, also known as Danku.
TheNET.ng, reports that the arrest took place on the red carpet of the comedy concert Pencil Unbroken which was held yesterday night at the Muson centre and industry sources confirm Oritsefemi is behind the arrest.
The arrest is by all accounts linked to his beef with Danku which started last year. “It was like a Hollywood movie, they just stormed the red carpet and whisked him away” said an eyewitness.
They further said:
‘After months of hide and seek, the long arm of the law caught up with Danku last night and he had no hiding place. He was picked up by officers of the Nigerian Police force at the Muson centre on the red carpet of Pencil Unbroken event for theft, conspiracy and impersonation’
The relationship between Oritse Femi and Danku started going south in 2014 after the singer accused Danku of stealing money from him and also claiming ownership of his MSN record label.
In January, the 31-year-old singer threatened to arrest Danku and his mother for conspiring against him and making threats to his life, but this arrest did not happen until yesterday.
Danku is said to have since been taken to Zone 2, Police command in Onikan, Lagos.
