RJR is reporting that a lot more detail is being uncovered about the plot to kill incarcerated danehall reggae artist Vybz Kartel.
Apparently Vybz Kartel got into a heated exchange with another inmate. It is said that Vybz Kartel tool water from his toilet and throw it in the face of the inmate. The inmate vowed retaliation not only against Vybz Kartel but also against fellow incarcerated dancehall reggae artist Shawn Storm.
The inmate paid and convinced a worker at the prison to smuggle in two knives and a poisonous substance into the prison. The female casual worker who was held on January 17 reportedly confessed that she was paid JMD 25 thousand to smuggle in the contraband.
The plot on Vybz Kartel’s life was foiled when a warder became suspicious of the bottle containing the two knives. The inmate at the centre of the feud with Kartel is being questioned in connection with the plot.
