Teni clears the air on the Rivers event, saying, "It wasn’t a kidnap attempt"


Teniola Apata, well known by her stage name Teni, has spoken out about the gunfire that stopped her performance at a carnival in Rivers State.

In a viral video that went viral on Sunday, the artist ran off the stage during an event in Buguma Town, Rivers State's Asari-Toru Local Government Area, (see here)

The gunfire scare was initially reported by some media outlets to be a kidnapping attempt on the artist.

Teni took to her Instagram account on Saturday to reject rumors that she was the victim of a kidnapping attempt.

"Everything happened so quickly." "There was no attempt at kidnapping," the singer wrote.

The Case singer revealed the cause of the panic by stating that a brawl broke out, which resulted in a stampede.

"A fight broke out backstage, resulting in a stampede," she wrote.

The singer previously stated that it could have been a different scenario, but she was grateful to God.

Grace Iringe-Koko, the acting spokesman for the Rivers State police command, confirmed the event but said Teni was retrieved unharmed by security officers.

"The police division in Buguma has been tasked with finding the perpetrators of the incident. "We'll make certain they're brought to justice," she declared.
