Congolese musician Koffi Olomide was arrested by Police at his home on Tuesday. He was taken to a court building, subsequently charged by a prosecutor with assault & battery and detained in prison pending the outcome of his case. This is coming after the music star was deported by the Kenyan government last week after a video emerged showing him kicking one of his female dancers at Nairobi Airport. The Music star has now released a statement addressing the detention. ........
"To all our friend (E) S, koffifiles and koffillettes: due to the injustice that sustains our artist koffi olomide, which has just been transmitted in prison without-conviction-pronounced, nor verdict of judgment and the refusal by the prosecutor to listen to the Dancer supposed to be the victim, we kindly ask you to put this photo of our artist on all your accounts, social networks as a sign of protest and especially of supports for the artist"
