Music star Teniola Apata, popularly known as Teni The Entertainer, suddenly left the stage at a concert where she was performing in Rivers State, following gunshots.
The Uyo Meyo crooner was performing at the popular King Amachree Square in Degema, Asari Toru Local Government Area, when gunshots were fired at the venue.
A video which surfaced online in the early hours of Monday, showed where Teni was performing one of her singles, Power Rangers at the concert on Sunday, January 2, 2021
But amid the performance, gunshots were heard.
This made the singer and the audience scamper for safety.
There were rumours that gunmen had attempted to take the singer away before she was whisked away by her bouncers.
But the Rivers State Police Command said that there was no kidnap attempt.
The Command’s Public Relation Officer, Iringe Grace Koko, told newsmen that nobody made any attempt to kidnap the singer.
She said some miscreants who had a misunderstanding at the venue of the show created a scene that made security agents at the venue release some gunshots to wade off violence.
Koko said the miscreants had a free for all but that the prompt intervention of the security agencies saved the situation.
She urged the public to disregard the rumour, insisting that no kidnap attempt was made in Degema.
