Police Arrest Reggae Musician, Victor Eshiet
Armed policemen today arrested Reggae musician, Victor Eshiet, popularly known as ‘Mandators,’ after leaving the premises of Ikeja Magistrate Court, Lagos.
It was gathered that the musician was arrested after he was acquitted and discharged of a criminal charge.
Speaking to Abelnewsng.com medium on the Mandator’s arrest, his lawyer, Charles Lambo, said the musician was arrested while going home after he had attended a proceeding in court.
Lambo said, “Mandators was in the Magistrate Court One, early this morning, to attend a criminal matter between him and a complainant, Morris Etim, who had filed a suit in which Mandators was accused of obtaining some amount of money by false pretence.
“But at the proceedings this morning, the court discharged and acquitted him of the allegation. It was while on his way home that some men suspected to be Policemen, fully armed and ordered his car to stop and he was arrested and up till now, no one know where he has been taken to”.
The counsel also said, “In spite of the fact that the case between his client (Mandators) and Etim is still pending in court, there have been series of threats from Etim that he will ensure that he use every available force to destabilize and run down Mandators”.
