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.

“Consequently, a letter was reviewed by the representative of the former Governor, terminating the contract to enable him refund the money, and 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 at the early hours of Saturday.”
