They spent two days in police custody with a court hearing before they were released and returned to Nigeria on Thursday 17th December.

Following their return, Tems and Omah Lay have both released statements regarding the situation.

In her statement, Tems wrote, “I am truly saddened that attendees could have possibly been exposed to COVID-19. I would have never participated had I even the slightest knowledge that the event would not meet standard operating procedures and put Uganda’s citizens at risk.” She went further to say, “I am thankful to the Nigerian and Ugandan government and everyone behind the scenes who played a part in resolving this matter. I want to especially appreciate my rebel gang, hnesly, you all keep surprising me with the consistent love you show me.”

Omah Lay also took to Twitter to say, “The past few days have been some of the toughest of my life that I wouldn’t wish them on anyone. Out in a new country with some beautiful people, the next thing I’m being treated like a common thief. First off I want to thank all the amazing fans that came out to see me in Uganda, the smiles on your happy faces that evening would be one of my happiest memories. Also, I wanna clarify that putting you in harm’s way was never my intentions! Before we came out to Uganda, the show promoters confirmed and proved to us they’d secured all the clearances which of course included Covid 19 compliance.” He added “Finally, big THANK YOU to everyone for your efforts, prayers, messages, tweets (Damn! Y’all went hard!). Big shout out to the musicians, the celebrities, fans (Again and again), my family, my friends, my Label, The Nigerian Mission in Uganda, The Presidency, The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Madam Abike. Thank you all so much!”
