A Disturbing Incident Unveiled
On June 25, 2023, while conducting a video shoot with another artist named Zlatan (Ibile), the individuals above, numbering about fifteen and led by Sam Larry Elegushi, invaded the premises armed with dangerous weapons such as guns and cutlasses. They disrupted the entire video shoot, damaged equipment valued at approximately Five Million Naira, and threatened my life. In the process, they became violent and assaulted me, resulting in injuries from which I narrowly escaped.

During the assault, the individuals boasted that they were acting on behalf of Oba Elegushi and claimed they had been instructed to deal with me for undisclosed reasons. To date, they continue to threaten my life if they encounter me. Sir, I urgently request your intervention to safeguard my life from these individuals and to bring them to justice.
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.”
