Nigerian musician, Johnson Oyindamola, popularly known as Dammy Krane, risks three years in jail as the Zone 2 Police Command is set to arraign him on Monday, according to Punch.

A copy of the charge sheet which was exclusively obtained by Punch showed that Dammy Krane will be arraigned on three counts before an Igbosere Magistrate Court in Lagos bordering on threat to life, defamation and conduct likely to cause breach of peace.

According to the document marked B/56/2019, the musician threatened the lives of staff members of betting company Merrybet Gold Limited on July 25, 2019 and also released a song in which he accused the firm of breach of contract.

The act is said to be in contravention of sections 301, 412 and 168 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.

The musician was also accused of conspiring with others at large of conducting himself in a manner likely to cause breach of peace and threat to life in contravention of Section 412 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State of Nigeria, 2015.

Dammy Krane was also said to have threatened public peace when he posted an audio and video message on radio in contravention of Section 168(d) of the state’s criminal law.

Section 301 of the state’s criminal law states that any person who, with intent to extort or gain anything from any person; accuses or threatens to accuse any person of committing any felony or misdemeanour, or of offering or making any solicitation or threat to any person as an inducement to commit or permit the commission of any felony or misdemeanour is guilty of a felony, and liable to imprisonment for three years.

It was learnt that the musician got into trouble after Merrybet Gold Limited wrote a petition to the police accusing the musician of threats and cyberbullying.

In a petition titled, ‘Petition against Mr. Oyindamola Johnson Emmanuel aka Dammy Krane for false and libellous statement against Merrybet Gold Limited and signed by its lawyer, Nwabueze Anachebe, the betting firm said the musician perpetrated cyberbullying and criminal defamation.

The musician was said to have attended a game show sponsored by the betting company but lost.

However, Dammy Krane was said to have demanded some money for appearing on the show but the firm disagreed, insisting that the sum is only given to winners.

The embittered musician subsequently went on the radio where he accused the betting firm of owing him money and breaching a contractual agreement.
