Daniboy, a prominent Nigerian music promoter widely recognized by his social media alias, iamdaniboy, has established a notable presence within the Nigerian entertainment industry through collaborations with various local music artists. However, his recent emergence in the public eye is linked to a distressing revelation regarding the alleged kidnapping of his brothers while en route to Kogi state.
According to his account, Daniboy managed to escape the clutches of the abductors with the assistance of the Nigerian army, who intervened to secure his release. He explained that the absence of an airport in Kogi compelled them to travel by road, a decision that eventually led to the unfortunate incident.
Adding a layer of complexity to the situation, Daniboy disclosed that his brothers remained in the custody of the purported kidnappers, who subsequently demanded a ransom of 20 million naira for their release. In a desperate plea for support, he took to social media to solicit financial assistance from fellow Nigerians.
The response from the public was mixed, with some individuals expressing genuine concern and contributing funds to aid Daniboy’s cause. However, skepticism arose among certain quarters, questioning the authenticity of the kidnapping narrative and speculating whether it might be an elaborate scheme to extort money from unsuspecting individuals.
Amidst the unfolding drama, Verydarkman, a figure in the online community, raised critical questions. He challenged Daniboy to provide additional evidence, questioning why the music promoter hadn’t contacted the Nigerian police before resorting to social media. Verydarkman also questioned the origin of the kidnappers’ videos posted on Daniboy’s Instagram, highlighting discrepancies in the narrative, such as the selective rescue of Daniboy by the Nigerian army, leaving his family in jeopardy.
The ensuing controversy has captivated social media, with a divided audience speculating on the authenticity of Daniboy’s claims. In response to the mounting skepticism, Verydarkman has taken a proactive stance, involving the police to conduct a thorough investigation. Nigerians, anxiously awaiting updates, remain vigilant as the unfolding events cast a cloud of uncertainty over the true nature of the alleged kidnapping.
