UK-based recording artiste Stylo G claims that he has been traumatized by an incident during which policemen detained him and four members of his entourage briefly at the National Police College of Jamaica in Twickenham Park, St Catherine, then processed and released them on Monday.
“It just traumatizing fi me fi know say I’m here working on my music and somebody gonna come and take me out of my house for no reason,” Stylo G said.
A member of Stylo G’s camp also denied that there were wanted men in his entourage.
“Five persons were detained, five persons were released, nothing like that king, no loose ting,” a source close to the artiste told Loop News reporter Claude Mills.
The “Touchdown” artiste went live on his Instagram profile when the police approached him while he and his associates were staying at a house in a gated community, Caymanas Country Club Estates in St Catherine.
The policemen found no weapons or evidence of illegality, the lawmen said he had to come in for ‘processing’, the source said.
The recording artiste seemed bewildered at how the situation had evolved into a minor security crisis.
“People send police ah mi place. Why you want arrest me and take me to the station? Why you want to arrest me and yuh don’t find nuh gun? This is wrong,” Stylo G said in the video. He then handed the phone to a female who recorded the entire interaction.
Stylo G said that he was released after processing, but said that the ordeal has left him angry and traumatized.
