Patoranking reportedly arrested and released in Uganda
A Ugandan blog Redpepper is reporting that Ebonyi-born Dancehall singer Patoranking was arrested and held for over 7 hours for failing to adhere to instructions at the Entebbe International Airport in Uganda yesterday.

Quoting an eyewitness, the report said:

“He failed to adhere to check-in rules and above all he had not secured his entry visa. He was just told to remove his cap for security check-up but he chose not to listen to instructions. He was denied entry and arrested for disobeying lawful check in orders.

“Patoranking who arrived at the Airport at around 4pm, was detained for over 7 hours. After countless times of apologising and begging, he was later released and granted entry visa.

“Trying to show that he is a known celebrity, he first refused to accept entry visa saying he was disrespected and harassed by immigration officers. He later coiled his small tail and headed to Hotel Africana, where he addressed journalists.”
