Contrary to a report credited to Seun Egbegbe that he was neither arrested nor beaten by any mobit has been verified that as at Wednesday afternoon the film-maker was still in police custody.

Egbegbe was mobbed on Tuesday for allegedly stealing nine iPhones, after which he was taken to the Area F Command in Ikeja.

It was learnt that the state Commissioner of Police, Fatai Owoseni, had visited the Area F Command, where Egbegbe was being detained, and was briefed on the investigation.

Egbegbe’s problem started at the Computer Village, Ikeja, after he was accused of stealing the iPhones from a shop.

After buying the phones, he reportedly told a sales person in the shop that he wanted to pick money from his vehicle outside. He allegedly attempted to escape with the phones in the waiting jeep when the sales boy raised the alarm.

However, he was said to have told the police that he wanted to pick the money when the sales boy screamed for help and alerted the mob.

But Egbegbe on Wednesday denied the incident.

The statement, which was credited to him and went viral, stated that he was neither arrested nor beaten up by any mob and was at home relaxing.

A police source at the command told PUNCH at about 3pm on Wednesday that the film-maker was still being held for interrogation.

The source said, “He (Egbegbe) is still in our custody. His associates have been debunking the allegation. He is still in detention. The CP even came to interrogate him this afternoon (Wednesday).”

The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, SP Dolapo Badmos, said Egbegbe was still under investigation in the command, adding that the public would be informed on the outcome of the investigation today Thursday

Why should lagos CP come down to interrogate him, a thief is a thief, let the regular police do their diligent duty and if found capable, be charged to court immediately.  If na local person na, we go only hear when he is bunt already like say police no dey again.
