Duncan Mighty arrested over alleged fraud
Operatives of the Imo State Police command have arrested popular music artist Duncan Mighty on an allegation of fraud.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Police Public Relations Officer of the Imo State Command SP Ikeokwu Orlando
According to the statement, 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 Special Adviser on Entertainment, entered into a deal with DUNCAN MIGHTY to manage, promote, arrange collaboration with other top artist 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) which was paid to him.
However, since collecting the payment he refused to fulfill his own part of the deal.
Sequel to the petition, the artist was arrested, and he affirmed 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 reconnaissance.
Consequently, a letter was reviewed 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 in the early hours of Saturday 14th December.
