Wave making music sensation, Adedeji David Adeleke, better known as Davido has refuted recent reports that an Assistant Inspector General of Police has ordered his arrest for beating up a taxi driver sometime ago. Davido, fondly called “Omo Baba Olowo” by fans reacted to the issue via his Twitter handle early on Sunday. Unlike normal twitter posts which allow just 140 characters, Davido had quite a lengthy message as he tweeted “I wish to assure all my beloved fans and friends that I am not wanted by the police and no officer in the Nigerian police gave an order for my arrest.
I went to the police some weeks ago to give a statement and cleared my name. I did not beat up any taxi driver and the lady that hired the taxi driver all those that are involved in this matter have made statements to the police and none of them mentioned my name except the taxi driver who claims that a large sum of money was missing in his taxi. In fact, the lady in question stated that she was not beaten by anyone and that nobody assaulted the taxi driver. This is a case of blackmail and I have resolved not to succumb to any blackmail for money. And to inform those that are in this conspiracy to bring me down, I want to remind you that God Almighty himself got me to where I am today in my music career and you will not succeed in your devilish efforts to bring me down”
