Seun Egbegbe, movie marketer, was taken in by the police for questioning on Thursday after he allegedly tried to dupe a bureau de change (BDC) operator.
PUNCH reports that Egbegbe was being detained at Area H, Ogudu, Lagos, over “$60,000 fraud.”
Although this has not been independently verified by TheCable Lifestyle, a video uploaded on social media showed Egbegbe in the middle of a commotion at Gbagada general hospital.
In the video, the movie marketer could be seen trying to hide his face while standing next to a police officer.
In the latter part of the video, Egbegbe was dragged by his trousers from the scene by the policeman.
Egbegbe was in 2016 arrested for trying to steal nine iPhone 6s from computer village in Ikeja.
Although he denied the claims, saying that he was trying to get money from his car when he was attacked, a charge sheet seen by TheCable Lifestyle accused him of theft.
“That you, Oluwaseun Olasunkami, on November 22, 2016, at about 9am, at 9, Simbiat Abiola Way, Ikeja, in the Ikeja Magisterial District, did steal nine iPhone 6s, valued at N2,400,000, property of one Kaaltex Innovation Consutancy, thereby committing an offence punishable under Section 278 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011,” the charge sheet had read.
Egbegbe pleaded not guilty to the charge and elected summary trial while the presiding magistrate admitted him to bail in the sum of N1 million with two responsible sureties in like sum.
His case was adjourned till February 8, 2017.
