Former Governor Amaechi Fires Back At Rivers Government Over Allegations Against Him

Published

on

 

Chibuike Amaechi has dared Rivers State government to go to court over the report of the state judicial commission of inquiry which indicted him on allegations of corruption.

According to a statement, yesterday, from his   media office, Amaechi maintained that the commission was a sham, insisting that it was set up   mainly to rubbish him.

The statement said witnesses were muscled up and told what to say and what not to say at the commission.

Describing the commission as a negation of the values of ethical justice and rule of law, the former governor said he will be excited if the state government goes ahead with its threat to take issues in its white paper on the commission to court.

He noted that the commission allegedly proceeded from conclusion to trial, stressing that even before it commenced sitting, it had indicted him.

The statement, “As we expected, the Justice G. O Omereji Commission of Inquiry set up by Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike supposedly to probe the immediate past Governor of the State, Rt. Hon. Hon. Chibuike Rotimi Amaechi did not disappoint. The panel lived up to expectations as a shambolic inquisition panel that was set up to indict Amaechi.

“Crudely, without any sense of finesse or attempt to disguise its mission to ‘hack down Amaechi’, the Omereji panel did the bidding of its paymaster. As we earlier warned, it turned out to be a comedy, a circus show to grab media headlines with bogus, phantom and fabricated claims of corrupt practices against former governor Amaechi and officials of his administration. It achieved nothing beyond political excitements, entertainment and theatrics”.

Davido has threatened to sue Dammy Krane over alleged defamation of character and cyberbullying.

Krane, in a post via X on Friday, accused Davido of being a “murderer” while hurling curses at the ‘OBO’ hitmaker.

He also shared a video of Davido and Chioma and alleged that the 31-year-old is getting married because “your girl caught you cheating”.

But in a statement on Friday, Chikaosolu Ojukwu, Davido’s legal representative, said Krane’s allegations “are unverified, false, and outlandish”.

The lawyer described Krane’s post as “malicious, orchestrated to defame and injure the reputation of Davido”.

“We are informed by our client that you have repeatedly published statements on your social media platforms that he finds not only defamatory and offensive but which also constitute an act of cyberbullying,” the statement reads.

“The false nature of your publications is evident, and it is clear that you have not verified their accuracy. The malicious nature of your post is also evident from your subsequent post taunting our client and stating that “HE CAN’T SUE BECAUSE I SPEAK THE TRUTH OPONU”, when in fact you know your allegations to be false and outlandish.”

Krane was also asked to delete the tweet on Davido within 24 hours or face legal action, including damages and injunctive relief.

“Within 24 hours from the date of this letter, remove and retract the offensive publication from all your social media platforms,” it added.

“Immediately refrain from any further publication of defamatory statements against our client on any platform whatsoever.

“Take notice that your failure to comply with these demands within the stipulated timeframe will compel our client to pursue all available legal remedies, including but not limited to initiating legal proceedings against you for damages and injunctive relief, and escalating this matter to the relevant law enforcement agencies.”

The singers have not been on good terms since 2022 after Krane accused Davido of unpaid debts.

Social media was recently sent agog after Wizkid referred to Don Jazzy as an influencer while replying to an alleged diss comment from Mavin Records signee Ladipoe.

Rapper Ladipoe posted that Afrobeats stars were going through their own “Afrobeats is dead era” after Nigerian hip hop had been through the “hip hop is dead era”.

Wizkid had earlier commented that “hip hop was dead” which generated criticism and reactions from Nigerian rappers with Oladips and Zila Oaks releasing diss records aimed at the Grammy winner.

Ladipoe’s comments were considered by some fans to be targeted at Wizkid whose attention was called to it during an online interactive session with fans.

Wizkid reacted to Ladipoe’s statement by saying he can’t engage a rapper signed to an influencer in a comment that drew reaction and criticism for being disrespectful to Mavin Records boss Don Jazzy.

Wizkid asked me to take down our song, says Terry G

Published

Terry G, the Nigerian singer, has revealed that Wizkid’s legal team demanded the removal of ‘Mary Jane’ from streaming platforms.

‘Mary Jane’, a song by Terry G featuring Wizkid, was recorded several years ago but was released in April.

In a recent interview on Afrobeats Podcast, Terry G disclosed that the track was recorded in his studio in 2016.

He said he did not seek approval from Wizkid’s management before putting out the song.

Terry G said Wizkid’s lawyers reached out to him to take the song down, adding that he has directed his team to comply.

“To be honest, ‘Mary Jane’ was recorded years ago. He came to my house in 2016, right inside my studio,” he recalled.

“I didn’t clear the song I made with him because in my era we don’t clear songs, we do collaborations based on love.

“I got an email and my management contacted me. They didn’t want to tell me so that I wouldn’t feel bad. They said his lawyer messaged them about what is going on.

“I have dropped the song and requested that it be pulled down, and I am sure they will do that. The lawyers have also reached out to me to take the song down.”

Despite their perceived misunderstanding, Terry G expressed his admiration for Wizkid, describing him as the “Jay Z of this generation”.

He recounted how they both recorded songs in his house, adding that those were “one of the greatest moments for me” in the music industry.

“The memory I had with Wizkid is good, we ended with love and I placed him so much on a high priority,” he said.

“He came to my house, we recorded about four songs, and I appreciate it. We did a lot, and that was one of the greatest moments for me in this music game we were playing.

“Wizkid is the Jay Z of your generation. There is something I like about Wizkid. It’s not about what you have but how you carry it. He’s got that carriage and he inspires a lot.”
