David O denies being wanted by the police


The young singer says the recent newspaper report about him is false.

Fast rising singer, David O, has denied reports published in the Punch Newspaper on Saturday, which suggests that he was wanted by the police over the on-going assault case involving him and a taxi driver.

The report stated that the Assistant Inspector General of Police has ordered the arrest of the popular pop singer.

But the 19-year-old starlet insists that he did not beat up the, now-popular, taxi driver, Femi Ajibola, who claims he was assaulted by David O. The singer also said that Susan (Davido’s supposed lady-friend who hired the driver’s services) has also denied the news.

In defence, the singer took to twitter in anger saying: “I’m about to sue these niggas!!lool stop putting lies in the papers.”

His management team has also issued a statement debunking the reports as mere falsehood,

“I want to assure all my beloved fans and friends that I am not wanted by the police and no officer in the Nigerian police gave an order for my arrest,” the singer said in the statement.

He said he went to the police some weeks ago to give a statement, where he cleared his name.

“I did not beat up any taxi driver and the lady that hired the taxi driver and all those that are involved in this matter have made statements to the police and none of them mentioned my name except the taxi driver who claims that a large sum of money was missing in his taxi, in fact the lady in question stated that she was not beaten by anyone and that nobody assaulted the taxi driver,” David O said.

“This is a case of blackmail, and I have resolved not to succumb to any blackmail for money. And to all those that are involved in this conspiracy to bring me down, I want to remind you that God Almighty himself got me to where I am today in my music career and you will not succeed in your devilish efforts to bring me down,” he added.
