Aunt reveals why Dammy Krane was arrested in US for credit card theft

Aunt reveals why Dammy Krane was arrested in US

Dammy Krane was arrested last friday (June 2) in U.S after he and another Nigerian, Chukwuebuka Gabriel Ilochonwu allegedly used stolen credit card details to book a jet for a trip to Miami from a private jet leasing company, Tap Jets.

The charge sheet listed Dammy Krane's crimes as "Grand Theft 3rd Degree/Armed/Conspiracy/Credit Card Forgery/Intent to Defraud."

According to one of his aunties who lives in U.S, contrary to the prevailing views on social media, with many Nigerians lambasting Dammy Krane for trying to live and portray a lifestyle above his means, he was only a victim of circumstance.

Speaking to Sunday Scoop, she said:

"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 was able to confirm that he was indeed arrested. He has been in the US for some time now and he has regularly been booked for shows all across America.

The guy he was arrested with had actually 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."

Speaking further, she said:

"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."
