Attempted murder allegation: Runtown’s boss calls singer liar, publicity seeker
Nigerian singer, Runtown’s record company, Eric Many, has reacted to the report that the CEO was arrested outside of his gym on Friday 20th of April. He was reportedly taken to Alagbon Police Station to give his statement for attempted murder.
In a statement reported by GoldmyneTV, Eric Many’s management said the Nigerian Police only brought in their boss, Dilly Umenyiora, for questioning following a report of threat to life by Runtown.
According Eric Many, Runtown claimed that he was threatened, which was later found out to be untrue.
“Dilly immediately returned home to go about his life without hassles after attending to questions from the police.
“This is not the first time Runtown has accused his label boss of pulling a gun on him. In 2016, he pulled the same stunt and he’s repeating it again to create cheap publicity.
“Every time the record label takes legal actions through a law court against Runtown through injunction for severe damages to the label, Runtown results to cheap stunts and bringing up issues like threat to life with a gun which is totally false,” the statement read.
The management added that this did not take away the fact that “there’s a Federal High Court Injunction against Runtown and as at the last court sitting on April 16th, he expected the case to be dismissed but it didn’t happen. That’s why he resorted to blackmail.”
The company, however, maintained that there was never a threat to Runtown’s life directly by Dilly or anyone affiliated to the them.
“Eric Many, since this case began, has been civil and remain to be civil by following through with the court injunction and never resort to violence or blackmail.”
