Operatives attached to Area F Police Command, Lagos, yesterday arrested Nollywood celebrity, Seun Egbegbe for allegedly stealing seven IPhones at Computer Village.
Egbegbe, an ex-lover of Yoruba movie star, Toyin Aimakhu was whisked away from a mob that attacked him after an alarm was raised from Keelcech Innovation Store, where he allegedly committed the offence.
It was gathered that Egbegbe, who went to the market in a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV), was moving towards his vehicle with IPhones when the shop owner screamed for help.
He was said to have taken two Iphone7 and seven IPhone6 plus, totaling nine.
However, Egbegbe at the station denied the theft allegation, insisting that he only went to his vehicle to get the balance payment based on his agreement with the sales boy.
Police spokesperson Dolapo Badmos, a Superintendent (SP) said: “The command received the report. There are accusations and denials. The shop owner alleged that the said Seun came to his shop to buy phones, in the process he wanted to bolt away in a vehicle, while Seun said he wanted to pick money from his vehicle to balance the payment based on agreement with the sales boy but as he entered the vehicle the boy screamed for help and he was attacked by some people around the vicinity. “However the command through its operatives at Area F is investigating the matter to unravel the occurrence. The outcome would be made open.” (The Nation)
