AceShowbiz - Ludacris' manager finally breathes a sigh of relief. Chaka Zulu, who was previously arrested and charged with murder over an Atlanta shooting, had his charges dropped and he was so "pleased" to hear the news.
Taking to Instagram on Wednesday, November 22, Chaka shared a statement from his attorney, Gabe Banks. "Mr. Chaka Zulu, a beloved son of Atlanta, is pleased with the outcome of the thorough investigation conducted by District Attorney Fani Willis and her team of lawyers and investigators," the message first read.
"From the beginning of this case, Mr. Zulu was committed to a fair process. He fully believes that after a thoughtful examination of all the facts and evidence related to this matter, District Attorney Willis reached an appropriate and just decision," it added. "It is not lost on Mr. Zulu that there was a loss of life under extraordinary circumstances."
"However, it is now time for Mr. Zulu to put this difficult process behind him, and to focus on the support and nurturing of his family," the statement continued. "Accordingly, we respectfully request privacy at this time, and that any inquiries be directed to the office of Gebe Banks, Esq."
In the caption, Chaka exclaimed, "I THANK ALL WHO SUPPORTED AND PRAYED FOR ME THOSE SEEN AND UNSEEN. GOD IS THE GREATEST. MY ANCESTORS ARE WITH ME." He then concluded, "LOVE IS LOVE #CASEDISMISSED."
Chaka reportedly turned himself in on September 13. He was charged with murder, aggravated assault, possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime, and simple battery but was later released on a $200,000 bond.
Chaka was one of three people shot on June 26. The incident took place at a Peachtree Hills shopping center in the city's Buckhead neighborhood around 11:35 P.M. According to local Atlanta station WXIA, one of the men died at a local hospital. The Fulton County Medical Examiner's Office later identified the 23-year-old man as Artez Benton from Scottdale.
