Alleged Theft: Police Confirm Egbegbe In Detention
Police have confirmed that Seun Egbegbe is still in custody, contrary to claims that the movie producer was never arrested.
It was gathered that the Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, had visited the Area F Command of the force in Ikeja, where the suspect was detained.
Egbegbe, an ex-lover to Yoruba movie star, Toyin Aimaku, purportedly stole nine Apple phones from a shop at the popular Computer Village on Tuesday.
He was said to have gone to Computer Village with some guys in a jeep around 10:30am pretending that he wanted to buy seven iPhone 6s and two iPhone 7 mobile phones.
However, a statement credited to Egbegbe which went viral on Wednesday insisted that he was neither arrested nor beaten up by any mob.
“I want to state here categorically and emphatically that though I was at the Computer Village to address some issues, I was never arrested for stealing 10 iPhone 7s, as stated by the writer of the story.
“The matter has since been resolved by the police and the issue of me stealing phone is devilish from the said writer,” he said.
