Fast rising artist Kiss Daniel got a rough treatment when some bandits robbed him of some of his valuables while he was performing on stage at the Calabar Christmas Village.
Reports say the bandits, whose numbers could not be ascertained, stormed the Christmas Village at about 1am and began to shoot sporadically into the air casting fear into many while also dispossessing anyone in sight of their valuables.
According to an eyewitness, it was at that point when pandemonium struck that some of the robbers approached the artist on the stage and were able to dispossess Kiss Daniel of some of his items before the intervention of security operatives who took him away to safety.
But in his statement, Mr. Jimoh Ozi-Obeh the state Commissioner of Police denied Kiss Daniel was robbed stating that a sudden change of venue without security notice caused a misunderstanding among the organisers.
“There was no robbery incident in Calabar and nobody was attacked by robbers in any other part of Cross River State. What happened was that the government had initially planned to host the musician at the stadium, but the plan was changed to the Calabar Christmas Village. They probably had misunderstanding with the organisers. It was the change of venue that was not properly organised,” he said.
