Just in case you have been in Mars or Jupiter and missed the drama on instagram and most of the Nigerian blogs,and don't know what happened to Seun Egbegbe,he was meant to have gone to to the village to buy some phones.After selecting the items,he sent the attendant to go get him something,taking this opportunities,he absconded from the shop with the phones and escaped into his jeep.When the shop attendant returned and could not find Egbegbe,he quickly called for help.They rushed out and caught up with him,fast forward to some nice beatings and a bloodied face later,he
was taken to the police station.
Now as expected he has given his side of his story denying that he stole the phones.He explained that what happened was he went into his jeep to get the balance of the money to pay the shop attendant.As he got into his car,he saw some people running towards him calling him a thief.
Now what i don't get is this,why would you take the items into the car when you haven't paid for them?
Shouldn't he have left the iphones in the store and gone to his car to get the money?
See the press statement he released below....
"To say the least, the news did not only grossly misinform unsuspecting public; it also portrays traces of campaign of calumny by some mercenary hirelings hell bent in destroying my name, for reasons best known to them.
"Having read with keen interest the completely self-serving spirited attempt to destroy my person, it has become imperative and timely that a rejoinder is written to state the fact clearly.
"I want to state here categorically and emphatically that though I was at Computer Village to address some issues, but I was never arrested for stealing 10 I phone 7s, as stated by the writer of the story, the matter has since been resolved by the Nigeria Police; and the issue of me stealing phone is devilish from the said writer.
"Furthermore, It is rather unfortunate that the said writer will amount to cheap blackmail to deceive the unsuspecting public with a view of gaining cheap popularity.
"It is germane to note that I am a charitable, humane, and grass root person, who has exhibited selflessness in communal service, which have used as a veritable tool for social development.
"Finally, I wish to inform the general public to discard the report. I am presently at home relaxing!"
So there you have it?Who are you gonna believe?Most Nigerians seem to think it must be a movie scene as they found it hard to believe a man with so much fame and influence as well as money could stoop so low.
