The comic star had narrated on several occasions how he was poisoned in the past by persons close to him.

In an interview with The Punch published on Sunday, August 21, Ibu said he is now mindful of new faces around him, considering that it was done by someone he helped.

The actor said; “These days, I am usually skeptical because I later found out that it was somebody I had helped in the past (who poisoned me).”

He futher revealed that he is still undergoing treatment in Abuja because there is still some remnants of the poison in his system

“If not for God, the result would have been bad. As I speak with you now, I am still being treated somewhere in Guzape, Abuja,” he added.

Speaking further, the movie star urged government to do more to in terms of ensuring the safety and secutity of filmmakers.

He said, “I expect the Federal Government to act on this. Whether we like it or not, we (actors) are serving the government. The movies we make are for the benefit of the general public. If the government wants to better protect us, they can do it.”

“Legbegbe welcome back” -Nigerians react as Toyin Abraham’s ex-lover Seun Egbegbe regains freedom after 3 years

Published

on


Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimaku‘s ex-lover, Olajide Kareem, better known as Seun Egbegbe, has regained his freedom after spending roughly three years and six months in prison.

He was locked up on February 10, 2017, after obtaining money by false pretence from no fewer than 40 bureaus de change operators in different parts of Lagos from 2015 to 2017.

Seun Egbegbe, who was the boss of Ebony Production, allegedly swindled the BDC operators out of money by claiming that he had naira to change into foreign currencies and vice versa.

He had been arraigned by the police for a series of fraud involving N39,098,100, $90,000 and £12,550. Egbegbe and one Oyekan Ayomide were first arraigned on February 10, 2017, before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo, on 36 counts bordering on advance fee fraud.

The charge sheet was subsequently amended twice, with the counts eventually increased to 40 and three other defendants – Lawal Kareem, Olalekan Yusuf and Muyideen Shoyombo.
In a recent development, Federal High Court, Ikoyi has found Egbegbe guilty of just one of the 44 Counts charges after reviewing his case.

Toyin Aimaku’s ex-lover was set free yesterday 11th October 2022. Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo declared that 43 of the 44 Count charges were dismissed because of a lack of witnesses to substantiate their claims.
She also denounced that the prosecuting team failed in the responsibility to produce evidence, to be backed with witnesses.

Lamenting that police tampered with the money recovered from the suspects, Justice Oguntoyinbo also ruled that all the money recovered from Egbegbe as evidence should be returned to him.
Nigerians welcomed Seun Egbegbe back after spending three years in prison with hard labour. Some reactions are shown below:

dhbwholesalesenterprises said, “iPhone 1 legbe gbe gbe welcome back, now iPhone is up to 14 waka jeje ooo

”.
yendishomebargains said, “Guy will come out and see that the world he was trying to please and flaunt for has left him behind , the world doesn’t really care , just try and live well”.
