Nigerian Singer Omah Lay, who recently left Uganda after being Arrested for performing at an illegal concert, has said that he has never in his life experienced what Uganda Police made him go through, he said he was treated like a thief.
Omah Lay and Temilade Openiyi alias Tems were arraigned before the Makindye Division court on Monday and remanded to Kitalya prison. They were charged with negligence acts likely to spread an infectious diseases C/S 171 of the Penal Code Act.
However, the government of Uganda dropped the charges against the two singers who later flew back to their Country Nigeria.
Upon his return, Omah Lay expressed disgust and to his defense, he said that he did not organize the concert and had no idea it would spread the deadly Covid 19.
” The past few days have been some of the toughest of my life that I wouldn’t wish them on anyone. Out in a new country with some beautiful people, the next thing I’m being treated like a common thief,” the singer posted on his social media pages on Thursday.
“Before we came out to Uganda, the show promoters confirmed and proved to us they’d secured all the clearances which of course included Covid 19 compliance. At that point, my sole obligation became to make myself available to be taken to the venue and entertain, which I did in the full glance and protection of the Ugandan police. I have put this behind me and back to what I know how to do best. One Africa Omah is home.”
