Eric Many Entertainment record label boss, Okwudili Umenyiora, has reportedly been arrested by the police for attempted murder after he allegedly pulled a gun on label artist, Runtown.
The record label boss who owns Dilly motors was reportedly arrested this Friday, April 20, at a gym. He was arrested and taken to Alagbon police station.
According to reports, Umenyiora had been arrested for threatening his former label artist, Runtown, with a gun. It was gathered that the record label boss was charged with attempted murder.
A video shared on Linda Ikeji's Instagram page shows how the record label was arrested outside the gym.
In March, Eric Many Entertainment had sued the artist for breach of contract. Runtown was restrained from performing and recording by a Federal High Court. The court had restrained the artist from doing anything related to music until he settles his debt with the label.
Umenyiora had also stated then that Runtown might be arrested after investigations revealed that the artist allegedly blackmailed the record label boss.
A statement released by the record label reads: "Preliminary findings have revealed that the released s*x tape and Whatsapp chat purportedly leaked by Runtown’s label is totally fake and a badly executed stunt by the artist himself. Investigations have led to the capture of a suspect (name withheld) who confessed to using a fake Instagram account to spread the false s*x tape leak on Runtown’s request.
‘We have maintained from the beginning of this saga that Eric Many has a verifiable court injunction against Runtown and we’ll not resort to blackmail or cheap social media stunts as we believe in the rule of law. Investigations are on-going as regards the leaked s*x tape story and we’ll let the law take its full course."
More details of the arrest would be reported later.
