Movie maker Seun Egbegbe was on 2nd of February arrested again for trying to dupe two mallams (bureau de change operators) of about 6 millon Naira while on the pretex that he was a medical doctor.
This is the second time he is being arrested for theft. The first one was when he tried to steal some iPhones from the computer village in Lagos.
Here is the press statement released by the state’s Police PRO as regards his arrest:
‘One Seun Karim, a.k.a. Egbegbe, and one Ayo Oyekan, disguised as the MD of Gbagada General Hospital and the other as a patient.
‘They lured one Alhaji Isa Adamu and Abdullahi Haruna, both Bureau de Change members, from different locations, that they needed US9,000 dollars
(2,742,750 by official rate) and £3,000 pounds (N1,142,995 by official rate).
The amount Seun and his entourage tried scamming the businessmen of, N 3.8m going by official exchange (over N6m at the black market), is lower than the N10m widely reported when the news broke.
They are now under detention at Area H in Ogudu, Lagos.
I think this man needs some sort of spiritual cleansing.
This disgrace is just too much and its now happening on the regular.
