In a country where statistics of violence and rape of women are not only alarming but a daily occurrence, news of a high profile star being linked to such a crime is disheartening and disturbing...

Cubana Chief Priest, a close friend of singing superstar Davido, is one of those stars who have been accused of brutally assaulting a woman.

This past week, reports emerged alleging the club and music promoter repeatedly punched a female staff member in the face, who works at his Cubana restaurant in Owerri.

According to the woman, whose name is Rekiya Jibril, Chief Priest assaulted in her the presence of customers and left her bruised and bleeding.
