West Africa Youth Support Development Forum And ECOWAS Youth Council have dragged popular Nigerian Singer, Peter Okoye to court over N2.8 million fraud.
The groups said Peter Okoye defrauded them of 2.8million naira, that's 70% down payment of 4million to come and perform at the inauguration of the West Africa Champions League in Asaba, Delta State which he didn't show up.
The group Managing Director of the company said, "on June 16th, 2019, after Mr. P collected the said amount of money and did a video that he will be coming live and he refused to show up at the event which later crashed the dream of the organization to give a better opportunity to youths."
"We lost over 33 Million Naira because he didn't show up. And efforts of former under 20 and 17 national team coach, Sam John Obuh and other hosts of celebrities who honored the event to support our youth development through sports were killed by Mr. P's actions."
"We have sued him for over 500, 000, 000, 00 naira. The organizations have written to him severally to refund the money but he refused".
