Police say Duncan Mighty was not abducted

Imo state Police command has described the news making the rounds that Musician, Duncan Mighty was kidnapped by unknown gunmwn as untrue.

The command said the artiste was arrested on Saturday over allegation of fraud.

The Port Harcourt-based singer was initially rumoured to have been kidnapped by unknown gunmen.

 Spokesman, Imo Police command, Godson Ikeokwu, said in a statement that Duncan Mighty was arrested following allegation of fraud.

He said “His arrest followed a petition written by an upcoming rap artist M2, who claimed that former Imo State Government led by Owelle Rochas Okorocha, through the office of the SA on Entertainment, entered 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) paid to him, However, since collecting the payment he refused to fulfill his own part of the deal,”

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 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.
