#FreeInas Trend as Benue Police Continue to Detain Music Artist

The #FreeInas hash tag has been trending on social media for days now with popular rapper Rugged Man and a host of others joining the trend.

see message sent to our correspondent by the artist manager...

"Benue artiste INAS (John Inas) has been in police custody since Wednesday 1st of June after being arrested for going home late after a video shoot...

He was bailed on Friday night with the sum of #20,000. But was told to come back on Saturday for the collection of his phone since the policeman in possession of the phone had gone home.

The next day when he went to collect the phone, the policeman told him not to disturb him about the phone or he'll rearrest him. The boy continued begging the policeman and the policeman told him to sit and wait for him. After 4 hours of waiting for him, the policeman handcuffed him and sent him along with 2 other boys arrested the night before to the state police headquarters (CID department) on a new charge of Homicide(murder), armed robbery and conspiracy.

The clips of the video and behind the scenes pictures of the video shoot have been presented to the police but because of the weight of the allegations made by the policeman, the case has been sent to court.

As I write this, INAS has been Remanded in prison to be retried on the 8th of August in court for a murder case he knows nothing about."
