Omah Lay Arrested And Detained In Uganda For Flouting COVID-19 Rules

Sensational Nigerian singer, Omah Lay has been arrested in Uganda.

According to The Tower Post, Police in Uganda made the confirmation of arresting and detaining Omah Lay after a concert.

Mr. Lay after a performance last night at a concert which held at Speke Resort Munyonyo was picked by Katwe Police together with the venue manager Ivan Dungu, events manager Prim Kasana.

“Nigerian Artist Omah lay has been arrested by katwe police, the manager of the venue one Dungu Ivan. Including the Events manager Prim Kasana are also in custody,” Kampala Metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire tweeted.

Mr. Lay’s arrest follows a public outcry by Ugandan entertainers who castigated the Police for allowing international artistes to hold concerts while the local ones are denied.


“There’s a lot of unfair play in both political and Entertainment circles. Some bars are open others are not and struggling. Some concerts happen with crowds others are not allowed, some politicians can have crowds others not. This was last night, a concert with crowds and it went on smoothly,”

Media personality and events organizer Douglas Lwanga captioned a picture of Omah Lay’s concert.

Police are yet to reveal charges preferred against the Nigerian star but The Tower Post understands that he flouted Covid19 guidelines as issued by the President.
