The ex-husband of Nollywood actress Toyin Aimakhu, Seun Egbegbe, was brutalized by an angry mob for allegedly stealing 7 Apple iPhone handsets at a store in Computer Village, Ikeja earlier this week (read here).
In a statement released by the Yoruba movie actor’s “Publicist/PR manager”, Seun Egbegbe claimed he never stole the devices as reported by the media.
The statement says:
Prior to the news filtering the social media about Seun Egbegbe accused of stolen iphones on tuesday 22nd Nov. at computer village, Ikeja; this is to inform the general public to debunk all negative stories published about him which is never true.
The Truth: Seun Egbegbe was at keelcech shop, located at no 9, medical road, ikeja, to purchase some phones. After making his order from the shop sales rep & walking towards his car to pay up the balance of the phones, the sales rep claimed he’s bolting away with the phones which was never true.
Before seun egbegbe could say a word to the angry mob around, he was attacked and lynched with no explanation. It was a known fact that; Mr Seun Egbegbe can afford to buy thousands of iphones if needed. So why would he go to steal iphones? He is a philantropist who helps multitude in our society today with his riches from God. We will authoritatively inform you that, the issue has been settled and resolved by the two parties amicably.
