Contrary to the kidnap story on social media, popular singer, Duncan Mighty has been arrested for alleged N11m fraud, the Imo State Police command said in a statement on Saturday.

According to the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Orlando Ikeokwu, operatives of the command arrested Duncan Mighty over allegation of fraud following a petition written by an up and coming artiste, M2.

The statement said, “This followed a petition written by an upcoming (sic) rap artiste 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 artistes and signed M2 under Young Wealth record label owned by Duncan Mighty. As a result, an agreement was reached with a fee of N11m paid to him. However, since collecting the payment, he refused to fulfill his own part of the deal.

“Sequel to the petition, the artiste was arrested, and he affirmed having such agreement and collecting the fund but said he could only refund the money if the contract was terminated. He was then released on bail on self-recognition.

“Consequently, a letter was received by the representative of the former governor, terminating the contract to enable him to refund the money. 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 this (Saturday) morning.”
