BREAKING: Police arrest popular Nigerian singer, Harrysong, at Lagos airport
Popular Nigerian Singer, Harrison Tare Okiri, aka Harrysong, has been arrested by the Nigerian police on arrival in Lagos.
The singer was picked up by officers of the Lagos State Police command after he arrived in Nigeria on Tuesday morning.
Speaking about the development, the police source revealed that the singer will be questioned over the matter and might be released or detained further depending on the outcome of their investigation.
His arrest is a result of the allegation the singer made against Soso Soberekon last week.
Harrysong had alleged that Soso Soberekon made an attempt on his life some time ago. He stated it during an interview on the Frankly Speaking podcast partly hosted by comedian, Nedu.
According to him, most people seen as his friends are “real enemies” looking for his downfall.
Speaking on his relationship with Soso Soberekon, he said, “As a matter of fact, those are my real enemies. If you see Soso now, you’ll say Soso is my friend. Soso is not my friend, Soso is my enemy. He sent people to come and kill me in Port Harcourt, no jokes. Ask my team, ask everyone.”
Soso Soberekon threatened him with a lawsuit if he doesn’t apologise and retracted his statement.
