Abiye David Jumbo popularly known as Mr. 2Kay was robbed at gun point in his hotel room at Eko Hotel and Suites, Victoria Island, Lagos, last night.
According to a statement by his record label, Grafton records, the sad incident happened around 11pm on Sunday, October 22, 2017, during the Buckwyld and Breathless concert. He had struggled with one of the 4 robbers who somehow gained access to his room, but was injured and threatened to calm down or he’d be shot dead.
One of the robbers locked the singer’s friend, who was with him in the hotel, into the bathroom, while the others tied the singer’s arms, legs and mouth and took his valuables including jewelry, clothes, perfumes, phones, and money. They also cut the room’s intercom (phone) to avoid any form of communication as they left the hotel.
James Silas, manager at 2Kay’s record label speaking on the incident said:
“I was quite shocked when I got to Mr. 2Kay’s room last night.
This was somebody I watched perform some minutes before the incident. Anyway, the hotel authorities and police are already investigating the incident and we hope they’ll apprehend the criminals as soon as possible.”
