There Was No Attempt To Kidnap Teni In Rivers State – Police



The police in Rivers State has debunked the rumour that there was a kidnap attempt on popular musician, Teniola Apata, in Degema, Asari Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State.

The artiste popularly known by her stage name, Teni, was invited to perform at the popular king Amachree Square in Degema on Sunday, but the show had to be stopped following pandemonium backstage.

A video shwowing people running helter skelter when the musician was performing surfaced on social media, which fueled that rumour that gunmen had attempted to kidnap the singer, but for her bouncers, who fired shots into the air.

But the Rivers State Police Command said that there was no kidnap attempt.

The Command’s Public Relation Officer, Iringe Grace Koko, revealed that nobody made any attempt to kidnap the singer.

She said some miscreants who had a misunderstanding at the venue of the show created a scene that made security agents at the venue release some gunshots to wade off violence.

She said the miscreants had a free for all but that the prompt intervention of the security agencies saved the situation.

She urged the public to disregard the rumour, saying no kidnap attempt was made in Degema
