Police Arrest Harrysong Over Alleged Threat To Life, Defamation


Musician Harry Okiri, popularly known as Harrysong, has been arrested by the operatives of the Nigeria Police Force (NPF).

Harrysong was arrested in Lagos State on Tuesday morning.

It was gathered that Harrysong was picked up on his arrival in Nigeria on Tuesday at the Airport by Police operatives.

The spokesman of the Lagos State Police Command, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed the musician’s arrest.

Hundeyin said Harryson was picked up by operatives of the Command over a petition against him.

Harrysong had recently accused Soberekon of sending armed robbers to kill him in his home in Port Harcourt, Rivers…
