Davido May Face Prison Sentence in Dud Cheque Scandal
Nigerian singer, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, is in a fresh scandal.
This time, the popular singer allegedly issued a dud cheque to an auto dealer
for the purpose of paying the sum of N7.4million as a balance for a Mercedes-Benz
GLE 450 he purchased.
Documents exclusively obtained by SaharaReporters showed that the auto dealer,
Mr. Anekwu Chika Valentine of Prestige Autonet Limited, has already contracted a
Lagos-law firm to assist him to recover the debt.
A letter of instruction addressed to the law firm of W.K Shittu and Co., stated that the
law firm will take 10 per cent of the sum owed by Davido if it is recovered.
On February 10, Davido issued two Zenith Bank (account number 100424****) cheques
of N10million and N1.4million respectively. However, the latter, which apparently was
to pay a part of the N7.4million was not honoured by Zenith Bank, where the auto dealer
is also a customer.
Giving a did cheque is a criminal offense punishable by a two-year jail term. Davido was
recently in the news, with a report alleging that another woman has had a baby for him.
However, he denied the reports.
