Huh! Upcoming Artiste Wrongfully Arrested and Charged for Murder


According to a mail received by Instablog: "An upcoming Benue music artist, John Inalegwu Edward aka Inas. has been arrested and charged for homicide, armed robbery and conspiracy after insisting on collecting his phone from a police officer.

It all started when Inas was arrested along University of Agriculture road in North Bank area of Makurdi by Division C policemen while returning home after a video shoot on the night of Wednesday, 1st June 2016.

After two days in police custody, on Friday, he was bailed by family and friends with the sum of N20,000 but asked to return the next day, being Saturday, for his phone and other belongings since the officer that had them, who goes by the nickname “magistrate”, was not around.

On returning the next day, ”magistrate” the policeman told Inas not to disturb him about the phone, threatening to rearrest him if he did. As the boy continued to plead with the policeman, he was asked to return on Monday for his phone.

When he returned on Monday, he was told to sit and wait for the policeman. After over four hours of waiting, “magistrate” the policeman handcuffed the young boy and sent him along with two others arrested the previous night to the state police headquaters on a fresh charge of homicide (murder), armed robbery and conspiracy.

All efforts to prove his innocence, including clips of the video shoot proved abortive. Inas and the two others appeared in court yesterday, 13th June 2016, and are being remanded in prison till the 8th of August 2016. John ( 08067641893 ) is his producer/Director."
