Ugandan Police have confirmed the arrest of Nigerian music artistes, Stanley Omah Didia popular as Omah Lay and Temilade Openiyi also known as Tems.

The duo were arrested for breaking COVID-19 protocols in the country. They were arrested shortly after a concert.

Their arrest was made public by an Assistant Superintendent of police in the country identified as Owoyesigyire (@lukowoyesigyire) on social media.

He made the announcement of the arrest of the duo on Sunday, December 13.

According to the officer who doubles as a police spokesperson, the managers of the venue where the concert was held have also been nabbed by the police.

He said: “Nigerian Artist Omah Lay has been arrested by katwe police, the manager of the venue one Dungu Ivan and the Events manager Prim Kasana are also in custody.”

In a different post, Owoyesigyire confirmed that Tems and her manager, Muyiwa Awomiyi, were also arrested.

Although unconfirmed, there are reports that the police were forced to make the arrest after an outcry by Ugandan artistes who called out the police in their country for allowing foreign artistes hold events while the locals are denied.
