The Federal Government is making efforts to get detained Nigerian singers, Omah Lay and Tems, freed in Uganda, says the Chairman of Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa.
Both singers were arrested by the Uganda Police Force for flouting COVID-19 guidelines..
They were arrested after their performances at The Big Brunch, which held at Speke Resort, Wavamunno Rd, Kampala, Uganda.
Dabiri-Erewa made this known in a tweet on Monday.
“#FreeOmahLay #FreeTems . The Nigerian mission in Uganda is doing everything to get them freed. Minister @GeoffreyOnyeama has also been on the matter. @nidcom_gov is also in touch with their Lawyers,” she tweeted.
Fast-rising singer Omah Lay earlier took to his social media account to cry out over his arrest in Uganda with his colleague, Tems.
In a series of tweets, Omah Lay said he was in cuffs.
He wrote, “I’m in cuffs in Uganda right now with Tems. I’m just a singer trying to entertain, why am I being set up in Uganda? I didn’t organize a show, I came on stage and saw teeming fans and sang to them…Why am I being detained?
“Why am I not been given a right to a fair hearing? Why is Uganda not letting @NigeriaMFA step into this? They have been trying to secure our release to no avail. Is there something bigger at play in Uganda? Why do I have to take the fall for it???”
