Police in Uganda, has confirmed that they have arrested and detained Nigerian singer Omah Lay. Mr. Lay who performed last night at a concert held at Speke Resort Munyonyo, was picked by Katwe Police together with the venue manager Ivan Dungu and events manager Prim Kasana.
His arrest follows a public outcry by Ugandan entertainers who castigated the Police for allowing international artistes to hold concerts while the local ones are denied.
Police hasn’t disclosed charges preferred against the Nigerian star but The Tower Post understands that he allegedly flouted Covid19 guidelines as issued by the President and the charges could be related to doing a negligent act that could lead to the spread of a pandemic.
“Nigerian Artist Omah lay has been arrested by katwe police.
“The manager of the venue one Dungu Ivan and the Events manager Prim Kasana are also in custody. More details to follow,” the tweet read.
