The Rivers state police say they are investigating the gunshot drama that broke out at an event where Teni performed.
A stampede earlier disrupted an event where the songstress was performing over the weekend.
The singer was performing ‘Power Rangers’, her hit song, in Port Harcourt, when violence broke out.
Amid the drama, fans were seen trying to exit the hall in a viral video while Teni was led to the back of the stage by some officials.
According to Punch, Grace Iringe-Koko, the acting spokesperson for the state police, said a probe has begun.
“[Teni] was invited for a carnival where she was performing, some miscreants started throwing stones and all that,” Grace said.
“But the police and other security agencies were on the ground to ensure nothing happened.
“The command has started an investigation into the incident to ascertain what really happened.
“The police division there in Buguma has been mandated to fish out those behind the attack. We will ensure they are brought to book.”
Speaking about the gunshot incident on Monday, Teni appreciated God for safety, adding that it could have been a different story.
“(It) could have been a different story entirely but I’m grateful to God. Myself and entire team are safe and back home now. Thanks for the calls and messages,” she wrote on Instastory.
Since her incursion into the music scene, Teni has continued to pull the weight of fame with her style of music.
The talented vocalist started to gain prominence after she put out her single ‘Fargin’ in September 2017.
She finally had her big break after releasing hit singles such as ‘Askamaya’, ‘Case’, and ‘Uyo Meyo’ in 2018.
The musician was recently in the news after she clashed with Shizzi, a producer, over the production of ‘Case’.
