The Chairman, Nigerians in Diaspora Commission, Abike Dabiri-Erewa, on Thursday announced that Nigerian singers, Omah Lay and Tems, have arrived in Nigeria.
Dabiri-Erewa made this known in a post on Twitter on Thursday.
Abike Dabiri-Erewa tweeted, “Stanley Omah Didia (@Omah_Lay), Temilade Openiyi (@temsbaby), Muyiwa Ayoniyi and others just landed at the MMIA Lagos from Uganda via Ethiopia Airline at about 12:35 pm local time. We are glad they are finally home. All is well that ends well. Gratitude to Min@GeoffreyOnyeama, our mission in Uganda and the @GovUganda for a quick resolution.”
Bibian Anekwe News recalls that the duo were arrested by Kampala Metropolitan Police after their performances at The Big Brunch, which held at Speke Resort, Wavamunno Rd, Kampala, Uganda.
The detention of the two Nigerian nationals in Uganda stirred a barrage of reactions on social media, as their colleagues in the music industry and others called for their release; condemning the Ugandan police and its government for politicising their arrest
