seun egbegbe arrested for robbery

November 23, 2016 – Nollywood Filmmaker, Ebony TV Boss Seun Egbegbe Denies Robbery Allegation, Says Sales Boy Lied…Police Releases New Details

Seun Egbegbe Released On Bail, Denies iPhones Robbery, Releases Official Statement

The owner of Ebony Film and ex-boyfriend of popular Nollywood actress Toyin Aimakhu, Seun Egbegbe has denied the robbery allegation hanging on his neck.

Though he was accused of stealing 9 iPhones at a shop in Ikeja Lagos yesterday, the controversial filmmaker however denied the allegations during police investigation.

Contrary to the Sales boy allegation, Egbegbe said he only stepped into his car to bring the balance when the sales boy raised false alarm.

Here is what a police source said:

Lagos Police spokeswoman Dolapo Badmos said Egbegbe had denied the allegation.

She added that the case is still under investigation.

Our source revealed that Egbegbe was released after spending close to 7 hours in police detention.

He is now trying to cover up the arrest story by claiming he was not the same Seun Egbegbe that was arrested with 9 iPhones at Computer village in Ikeja Lagos yesterday.

Here is the official press statement he released late last night.

How can he say he wasn’t arrested when the viral photos and eyewitnesses confirmed the report.

May be the guy pictured above is his twin brother **wink**

    I believe someone is trying to dent his image who knows.mean while he is a public figure I don’t think he can do something like that.may be he is suffering from his past.we shouldn’t judge yet.

    A young man was lynched to death for stealing just garri as a result of hunger, and a man who can put a good meal on the table, caught with stolen 9 iPhone. This is a disgrace to him.

    The photos resemble sha ooo! Since the names also resemble, perhaps next time the police should obtain receipt from the person released so it will be sure who was released from their custody***wink***

    Meanwhile, @NaijaGist please follow up the story and let us know who is charged in connection with the matter and even if no charges are pressed let us know who went to the police station to “close the case file”. If foto de lie we want know!

    Seun! you really disappoint me, a man of dignity like you involving yourself in stealing of iPhones which you can afford to buy, just take a look at your statement requesting of more iPhone and getting to bring the balance from your car the seller screamed and your colleague disappeared left you alone and you been accuse of sealing, my dear you are not shame of yourself why not pay immediately at the computer village before police involvement, I am too big to be fool with your story, you are in-responsible person, may looking at your face you look haggard as a criminal.

    Thanks to modern Technology of cell phone pix for exposing this Armed Robber before he changed the story. Seun or whatever you called yourself, I just want you to just keep your mouth shut for the time being because your hand was already caught in a cooking jar and you cannot deny that. If you already bribe the Police to cover you up, it is too late. Picture cannot lie. Go and sell that your cock and bull story to some imbeciles who are ready to buy it.

    You went to computer store and you ordered a sales man to give you 10 I phone worth close to 3 million Naira and you didn’t have enough money to pay for the merchandise, you deceive the sales guy and walked away with 9 cell phone because you wanted to bring in more money, during the course of doing that, the sale’s guy raised an alarm your accomplices knew what could have happened to them and they fled left your dumb ass to face the music.

    The question is why did they run away? Your story has no basis. How come you didn’t leave the cell phone with the guy and inform him that you wanted to take money from your car? If you have told that guy that you wanted to pick something from your car, he would not have raised an alarm? Just admit that your plan has failed and apologize to the owner.

    Folks, I just believe that God has a way of exposing men of the underworld like this guy. When some young dudes display ill gotten money that is beyond their age, we should try to investigate them. Nobody knows how this guy get his money and they are hailing him. If you are not from a rich background or known to have won a lottery, at least you must be able to prove to the world how you suddenly become a millionaire.

    This guy used the proceed from armed robbery to produce movies convincing people to believe that he is a young millionaire. Hhmmmmmmnnnnnnnnnnn…,,,,,,,,, now I know that not all that glitters is gold.
