In a video shared on his Instagram page, a voice can be heard alleging that the abductors were dressed in police uniform.

“They just kidnapped Gnewzy. God. Omo na police kidnap Gnewzy,” the individual said.

The singer was said to have been abducted along Eklat road in Ughelli while heading home from a show on Monday morning.

Eric Many Records, the artiste’s music label, also confirmed the abduction.

“It is with deep concern and grave distress that Eric Many Records announces the unfortunate incident involving our artist Gnewzy,” a statement by Adedayo Showemimo, its projector coordinator, reads.

“In the early hours of Monday, 29th April, Gnewzy was kidnapped in Ughelli, Delta State. His manager, Obas9ice, narrowly escaped the same ordeal on Eklat road in Ughelli.”

The abductors were said to have contacted Dilly Umenyiora, the record label’s CEO, via mail demanding a $200,000 ransom.

Confirming the abduction to TheCable Lifestyle on Monday, Bright Edafe, the Delta police spokesperson, said the law enforcement agency is investigating the matter.

The police spokesperson said the command is working to determine if there are any hidden motives behind the abduction.

“We are investigating. You know sometimes you may not know what transpired that led to that. We are looking into it to see if there are any underlying issue that could have led to it for now,” Edafe said.

“It was reported the fast rising singer was abducted.”
