Was there a plot to kill Incarcerated Deejay Vybz Kartel?
Since the beginning of 2015, imprisoned Dancehall star Vybz Kartel has died numerous times, according to several rumors.
Just two weeks ago, reports circulated that Kartel was stabbed and hospitalized. However, there was no truth to the reports.
Online reports surfaced on Friday (Jan. 16), that the Correctional Service Department has uncovered a plot to kill the “Cya Test We” deejay.
According to the reports, sources revealed that prison personnel was accosted and uncovered the plot to kill the Jamaican entertainer.
The incident reportedly involved an ancillary worker and a fellow inmate at the Horizon Adult Remand Centre.
The ancillary worker reportedly confessed that she was directed by the inmate to pick up what was purported to be two bottles of lotion and three ratchet knives to help carry out the murder of Vybz Kartel.
The bottles are reported to have contained poison which is said to be able to penetrate the skin.
She reportedly managed to smuggle the items into the high-security institution. Following investigations the items were discovered in a section of the facility.
Police dismiss rumors of attempts to poison Vybz Kartel
Police are dismissing claims that attempts are being made at the Horizon prison in Kingston to harm incarcerated entertainer Vybz Kartel.
Rumours have been swirling that attempts at poisoning the popular DJ have been made.
Head of Kingston Western Division, Senior Superintendent of Police Steve McGregor told media reporters on Saturday (Jan. 17) that he is aware of the rumors and made checks but all the claims were unsubstantiated.
He also dismissed claims that a female was arrested trying to smuggle poison into the correctional facility to harm the artiste.
“We have heard the rumours that attempts were being made to harm the entertainer and we would have visited the area and spoken to officials there and found these rumours to be false,” said McGregor.
“All of these allegations are false. The police have made checks and found rumours to be untrue,” McGregor emphasized.
Vybz Kartel, whose real name is Adidja Palmer, is serving life imprisonment for the murder of Clive ‘Lizard’ Williams in Havendale, a suburb north of Kingston, on August 16, 2011.
He was sentenced on April 3, 2014 and will not be eligible for parole for 35 years.
Kartel and three co-convicts have filed appeals against their conviction and sentences, claiming they got an unfair trial, and that there was a miscarriage of justice in the matter.
