National Treasurer of the union, Asha Gangali in an interview with RIPPLES NIGERIA on Thursday said that Obi Casmir and six other members of the union had been expelled since March, 2020, for purportedly ‘perpetrating illegality’ with the name of union.
Asha Gangali in the interview berated Obi Casmir for his continued perpetration of illegality by threatening (in his capacity as factional PMAN President) to drag (ALTON) to court over allegations of lack of revenue accountability to musicians.
