Dammy Krane’s family claim that it is a set up and their son is innocent.

The singer’s sister, Elizabeth Adeola Oshodi has released a statement on behalf of the family following the former’s arrest in Miami for Grand Theft and Credit Card Fraud.

Dammy Krane’s family  have said 'he is a victim of circumstances'.

She said the singer got arrested trying to board a flight from Maimi to Washington, because his ticket and hotel bookings were fraudulently purchased by the show promoter.

The family while soliciting for their son warned promoters and entertainers to always buy their air tickets by themselves and verify that the ticket and hotel reservations match the purchaser’s information.

An aunt of the singer, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, accused Ilochonwu Chukwuebuka of paying  for the private  jet using fake and stolen credit cards.

Chukwuebuka was arrested alongside the Nigerian singer for the same crime.

“We don’t stay in the same state over here but Dammy came to visit me just last week. I got the news of his detention on the Internet just like everybody else. After making some calls, I could confirm that he was indeed arrested. 

“He has been in the US for some time now and he has regularly been booked for shows across America. The guy he was arrested with had booked him for a show this weekend in Miami, and he (Chukwuebuka) was the one that paid for the jet and made hotel reservations with the stolen card details.

"You know it is a usual thing for show promoters to book flight tickets for artistes, so one cannot blame Dammy in this situation. A lawyer has already been contacted but unfortunately, Dammy would have to stay in jail till Monday when they would be able to go to court to perfect bail conditions,” the aunt said.
