Last week, we made a report on Reekado Banks and his manager being given an ultimatum by the Police to refund a couple they refused to show up at their wedding. It can be confirmed now that Temi, has been remanded in Kirikiri Prison on same case.
Reekado Banks and his brother, Temi, who also doubles as his manger were invited to the Ogba Area G police station, regarding a case of obtaining the sum of N2m as the fee for a performance at a wedding in Benin City on the 23rd of December, 2017 but failed to show up and at the same time refused to refund their clients of the amount of money that was already paid to them.
The latest update on the case now according to the camp of Uwa Igbinedion who took the matter to the police is that Reekado Banks and his team did not meet up with the Police deadline with the excuse that they incurred “logistical costs” – despite not honoring the deal.
Following repeated invitations by the police which Reekado Banks reportedly refused to honour, his brother/Manager, Temi, was yesterday arraigned before a court in Ikeja after which he was remanded to the Kirikiri Maximum Prison, even as the singer is still at large.
The case has been adjourned until the 19th of February 2018.
Before the matter was taken to court, Reekado Banks manager, Temi, was contacted on phone to confirm if the allegation was true, he replied harshly on the issue, in a stern voice 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’.
