Patoranking reportedly detained at Uganda airport
Nigerian hip-hop singer, Patrick Nnaemeka Okorie, popularly addressed as ‘Patoranking’ was reportedly detained in Uganda yesterday for allegedly entering the east African country without a valid visa.
Pulse reports that the reggae dance-hall singer was detained for over 7 hours yesterday at the Entebbe International Airport in Kampala Road for failing to follow the check in rules.
A source said, “He failed to adhere to check-in rules and above all he had not secured his entry visa.
“He was just told to remove his cap for security check-up but he chose not to listen to instructions.
“He was denied entry and arrested for disobeying lawful check in orders.” It was understood that the singer was in Uganda to promote his album.
According to the report, Patoranking arrived at the airport around 4:00pm and was detained.
He was, however, released and granted entry visa after much appeal.
