- One of Davido’s many crew members was reportedly involved in a scuffle at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos
- The crew member named Kayode was also arrested
- This was after he allegedly beat up airport officials
It seems controversy follows popular Nigerian musician Davido anywhere he goes. Even though this time, he wasn’t involved directly.
According to a report by Saharareporters, one of Davido’s crew members named Kayode was arrested for his unruly behaviour and attack on two members of staff of Murtala Muhammed International Airport (MMIA) in Lagos.
It all started when Kayode was asked to produce his baggage tags after returning from a trip abroad alongside Davido. It was gathered that the popular musician had arrived the country through an Emirates flight around 5pm with 17 items of luggage in tow.
The report further said Kayode refused and beat up officials of the Nigeria Customs Service (NCS), Aviation Security (AVSEC), a department under the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria (FAAN) and a staff of Checkport after they attempted to check their luggage.
He is said to have punched the Checkport staff on the face, which attracted other security officials at the terminal who immediately forced him to a restricted area within the terminal known as ‘tango city.’ Tango City is a place where touts and unruly persons are detained within the terminal before being transferred to a police station for further interrogation and possible prosecution.
At Tango City, the Kayode reportedly continued his attacks on security officials by hitting a female AVSEC official who was taking notes of the incident in the tummy and later pushed another Customs personnel who landed awkwardly and cut his wrist in the industrial fan in the area.
While this was going on, one wonders where Davido was. According to the report, OBO was aware of the on-going crisis inside the terminal ran to hide in a car outside the terminal where he awaited the release of his aides and luggage in vain.
Eyewitness at the scene revealed that the entire 17 luggage belonging to Davido are yet to be released. Also, NAIJ.com cannot confirm if the Kayode in this report is the crew member who is the creative director of the 30billion gang apparel and goes by blacktycoone on Instagram.
