Consequently MC Jerry was arrested in connection with the murder, and has been charged with murder, trespassing, kidnapping and serious assault.

Reports have it that late Mendeinyo and MC Jerry fell out over a Zimbabwean girl, and the six assailants, all Nigerians drove to the house of a friend to the deceased, kidnapped the fellow and forced him to take them to Mendeinyo’s house.
