Omah Lay shares sad experience in Uganda after his release

Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has shared his sad experience in Uganda and how he was arrested and treated like a common thief.

Recall earlier this month, Omah was arrested for violating the COVID-19 rules in Uganda.

He explained to his Ugandan fans that he never intended to put them in harms way, and whatever action he took while in Uganda, was in the presence of the Ugandan Police.

He showed appreciation to his mom, fans and celebrities for showing him love during his arrest and making sure that he returns safely.

In his words;

“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.

First off I want to thank all the amazing fans that came out to see me in Uganda, the smiles on your happy faces that evening would be one of my happiest memories. Also I wanna clarify that putting you in harms way was never my intentions!

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.

Secondly, to my mom, my family, my team, my fans, friends that I caused sleepless nights waiting and praying for me, I apologize for putting you through all that;…on the other hand I can’t thank you enough, I damned near lost my mind but your prayers and messages kept me going! Thank you so much!

Finally, big THANK YOU to everyone for your efforts, prayers, messages, tweets (Damn! Y’all went hard!).Big shout out to the musicians, the celebrities, fans (Again and again🙏🏾), my family, my friends, my Label, The Nigerian Mission in Uganda, The Presidency, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Madam Abike. Thank you all so much!I have put this behind me and back to what I know how to do best. One Africa ✊🏿Omah is home! 🤘🏾 Love,Omah 💜”.

 Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission Disowns Tonto Dikeh As Ambassador

 Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission Disowns Tonto Dikeh As Ambassador
Following the backlash that greeted the announcement that Tonto Dikeh has been appointed as an ambassador to the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission, the NCPC has disowned her as it’s ambassador.

Gistflash Media gathered that the commission disowned her in a press statement describing it as a figment of her imagination.

According to the commission, the ace actress who doubles as the founder of Tonto Dikeh Foundation on 25th February, 2021 paid a visit to the Executive Secretary, Rev Yakubu Pam to express willingness in partnering with the Commission in the area of peace building.

Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission Disowns Tonto Dikeh As Ambassador

But contrary to the reason for her courtesy visit and clear misrepresentation of what transpired, the commission was inundated with the viral ambassadorial claims as posted by the actress on social media.

The commission frowned at but still appreciated her desire to partner with the peace building initiatives and in the area of pilgrimage sponsorship to the Holy Land.

Read the full statement below;

PRESS STATEMENT:

“The Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission NCPC wishes to state in categorical terms that King Tonto Dikeh paid an official courtesy visit to the Executive Secretary of the Nigeria Christian Pilgrim Commission Rev Yakubu Pam on 25th February, 2021 at the corporate headquarters of the Commission in Abuja.

As the founder of Tonto Dikeh Foundation, she expressed her willingness and interest in partnering with the Commission in the area of peace building.

She equally cashed in on the visit to commend the NCPC boss for his positive and relentless peace initiatives across the country.

However, we are suddenly inundated with claims from King Tonto Dikeh herself that she has been officially appointed as Ambassador of peace by this great Commission. This claim has gone virile in the media.

The Commission frowns at this claim which is a clear misrepresentation of what transpired.
The fact remains that the Executive Secretary of NCPC never appointed King Tonto Dikeh an Ambassador of Peace for NCPC and this was not part of her visit therefore this claim by her is spurious, unfounded and should be discarded and seen by all Nigerians as a figment of her imagination.

Nevertheless, we appreciate her desire to partner with us in our peace building initiatives and in the area of pilgrimage sponsorship to the Holy Land .
