Singer, Runtown is set to appear before an Abuja High court on August 8th, 2018 for failing to obey a court injunction made on May 10th, 2018.
Runtonwn’s ex-label, Eric Many released a statement that revealed that an injunction against Runtown was filed and published on the pages of Punch Newspapers, on Monday, July 30, 2018. It appears the singer disobeyed the injunction and now he has been summoned to appear before an Abuja High Court on August 8th, 2018.
The statement reads;
“Recall that we served a Contempt Warning from Court on Runtown on July 4, 2018 after he defied Court Order and released a song. Rather than heed the Contempt Warning and retrace his steps, he issued a Press Release in which he argued that the Injunction had expired.
The Injunction was to stop things until the hearing of our Motion seeking to freeze activities until a decision on his status (whether he had discharged his obligations to us or not) is taken. It barred him from performing or releasing songs for the time being’.
The new injunction bars him from his threatened defiant actions in Canada, Namibia, Europe etc. We believe the new Injunction has not also ‘expired’ and hope he respects the Court this time.
Please bear in mind that our main case in Court boils down to whether Runtown has discharged his monetary obligations to us and delivered one Album to us as spelt out in our Contract.
He has responded, so it will be good to allow the Court to decide what each party filed. Let both sides apply restraint.”
