The Rivers State Police Command has dismissed the rumour making the rounds that there was an attempt to kidnap popular musician, Teniola Apata, in Degema, Asari Toru Local Government Area of Rivers State.

Apata popularly known as Teni was invited to perform at the popular king Amachree Square in Degema on Sunday.

A video of people running helter skelter when the musician was performing trended on social media earlier on Monday.

Sporadic gunshots had forced people to leave the venue while Teni was also taken off the stage.

There were rumours that gunmen had attempted to take the singer away before she was whisked away by her bouncers.

But the Rivers State Police Command said that there was no kidnap attempt.

The Command’s Public Relation Officer, Iringe Grace Koko, told our correspondent that nobody made any attempt to kidnap the singer.

She said some miscreants who had a misunderstanding at the venue of the show created a scene that made security agents at the venue release some gunshots to wade off violence.

She said the miscreants had a free for all but that the prompt intervention of the security agencies saved the situation.

She urged the public to disregard the rumour, saying no kidnap attempt was made in Degema.
