It was learned that his manager and another Media Personality were also involved in the case.

Reekado was said to have been contacted through an OAP Uwah Idahosa to perform but the singer allegedly collected the money and snubbed the occasion.

The OAP, who is said to be based in Benin, contacted the singer on behalf of the couple.

He subsequently took the singer to court when he (Reekado) allegedly failed to refund the couple’s money.

On getting to court, the “Oluwa ni” singer was only able to part with N800,000, hence he was detained, according to reports.

An insider said the Police Authorities gave the singer and his manager Temi an ultimatum to refund the money before Monday, or face the wrath of the law.

When pressmen contacted Reekado’s manager to verify the allegation, he sounded angry while saying: “All the allegations are not true, I will rather let the matter remain as it is. When the right time comes, we will let the public know what transpired between both parties.”
