Ruggedman has made a move that has shown how desperately he wishes to distance himself from the arrest of singers Naira Marley and Zlatan Ibile by the men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission.
You all would recall after the arrest of the singers on Friday, 10th of May, 2019 at their home in the Ikate area of Lekki, Lagos, Ruggedman went on a media round discussing the issue as well as putting it in the consciousness of people that fraud is forbidden.
However, in one of the dates he had with the media organizations, Ruggedman revealed he was happy when he woke up to the new that the singers have been picked up by the EFCC.
And since that revelation by Ruggedman, the rapper has been the subject of abuse and criticism among music fans. Many have slammed the singer for coming out to make such a statement as they believe even though prior to the arrest of the singers, Naira Marley disrespected him, he should never have said such and just stayed mute and observe how the situation turns out to be at the end.
However, Ruggedman in a statement he released yesterday has revealed he knows nothing about the arrest of the rapper and that even though he rubbed his face in the mud, he still had and has nothing against him.
He wrote; “My fellow Nigerians and the Distinguished members of the Press, I have read and heard all sorts of comments pertaining to the Naira Marley case and seen the misinformation making the rounds which is quite unfortunate to say the least
I do not know Naira Marley personally, the same way I do not know the over 300 Nigerians I have gotten justice for against police brutality. I do it because it is who I am
