Teni Makanaki @TeniEntertainer rebuffed my friend's cheers and instructed her bouncers to assault him. This happened at The Dome Event Centre, Asaba.— Malachi Chidiebere Aboh (@MalachiAboh) October 9, 2022

The event took place at The Dome Event Centre, Asaba and according to Malachi, the unprovoked assault was carried out on Teni’s instruction and the police watched on as the bouncer battered the fan.
In a Tweet posted by Malachi, the fan had joked about how Teni was no longer interested in taking pictures with fans as she was now a big star (blown). It was this statement that angered Teni who according to the post asked her bouncer to slap the fan thus leaving him with a bloodied eye.
There was nothing he did to warrant the assault. I stood there with him. He said Teni had blown and no longer took pictures with nor acknowledged fans. Then she instructed one of the bouncers to slap him if he was still standing there when she emerged from the hall. https://t.co/4qaVqyWtqH— Malachi Chidiebere Aboh (@MalachiAboh) October 10, 2022
As of the time of filling this report, Teni had not reacted to the claim and the Nigerian police are yet to issue a statement.
