Seun Egbegbe Has an Accomplice In The Theft- New Witness
Filmmaker, Seun Egbegbe, is really having terrible moments since he was arrested for allegedly stealing expensive phones at Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos.
It has not been easy on him as people are coming up with more demeaning reports against him even as Egbegbe has denied the story describing it as “laughable and better left in the court of public opinion”,
The owner of the shop said “My boy was injured because he was being dragged by the car when they were trying to get away with the phones. The guy has written his statement and there is a formal petition from the Nigerian Police. The guy (Egbegbe) had never come to buy anything from my store before now and I don’t know him. I did not see him because I was not at the office but my staff attended to him.
They were the one that took him to the police station. I just showed up at the police station but I am not an eye witness.”
Another shop owner who identified himself as Onyeka, said he witnessed what happened since his shop is directly opposite the scene of the incident.
“I was around when it happened and the man cannot deny it. It happened and the man stole the phones. If it did not happen, why did he have a bloodied mouth? Those guys outside were the ones that beat him but they did not beat him up to stupor, they just ‘touched him small’. At about 11am, the man came to the store claiming that he wanted to buy some phones.
He had spoken to the sales girl but all of a sudden, he told them to pack the phones for him and that he would give them the money in his vehicle.
As he got to his vehicle, he put the phones in the car and instead of him to bring out the money; he entered the vehicle which was already in motion. He was not alone in the car.
