Kiss Daniel robbed at Christmas Village Calabar

Kiss Daniel, one of the most promising pop singer was yesterday attacked by suspected armed robbers in Calabar Christmas Village.

According to local newspapers, Kiss Daniel was performing one of his popular songs ‘Woju o’ when he was attacked by a group of armed robbers who stripped him of his personal effects.

Eye witness accounts said the musicians was rushed into safety by his private security men who whisked him away from the scene.

Several cars and property at the venue where reportedly destroyed. There were also reports of several degrees of injuries sustained by concert goers who were disorientated by the robbery.

However, Commissioner of Police, Mr. Jimoh Ozi-Obeh for Cross River state told Punch Newspapers that there was no robbery attack at the Christmas Village but “a misunderstanding between the organisers”.

He said the original plan was that Kiss Daniel and other musicians would perform at the U.J. Esuene Stadium in Calabar, but the venue was changed to the Christmas village without any notice to security agencies.

“There was no robbery incident in Calabar and nobody was attacked by robbers in any other part of Cross River State. What happened was that the government had initially planned to host the musician at the stadium, but the plan was changed to the Calabar Christmas Village. They probably had misunderstanding with the organisers. It was the change of venue that was not properly organised,” he said.
