Movie producer, Seun Egbegbe, denies stealing 10 iPhones

About 24 hours after film producer, Seun Egbegbe, who is best known as the ex- lover of popular Yoruba actress, Toyin Aihmakhu, was arrested by the police for attempting to steal 10 iPhones from Computer Village in Lagos, he has denied the claims in a new statement sent to PREMIUM TIMES.

In the statement, Egbegbe, who came to public light following his whirlwind romance and dramatic split from Aihmakhu in May, denied being beaten to a pulp by a mob at the Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos State, on Tuesday for allegedly stealing 10 iPhones at a shop in the area.

The Ebony Films boss also refuted viral reports that he was consequently handed over to the police at the Area F Command, Ikeja, Lagos.

Read his statement below:

My attention has been drawn to an online publication of the aforementioned. The story is pretty laughable and better left in the court of public opinion. Ordinarily, 1 do not want to join issues with the writer of the publication but I have a responsibility to set the records straight for my fans, friends and foes, in the defence of the truth.

To say the least, the news did not only grossly misinform unsuspecting public; it also portrays traces of campaign of calumny by some mercenary hirelings hell bent in destroying my name, for reasons best known to them.

Having read with keen interest the completely self-serving spirited attempt to destroy my person, it has become imperative and timely that a rejoinder is written to state the fact clearly. I want to state here categorically and emphatically that though I was at Computer Village to address some issues, but I was never arrested for stealing 10 iPhone 7s, as stated by the writer of the story, the matter has since been resolved by the Nigeria Police; and the issue of me stealing phone is devilish from the said writer.

Furthermore, It is rather unfortunate that the said writer will amount to cheap blackmail to deceive the unsuspecting public with a view of gaining cheap popularity.

It is germane to note that I am a charitable, humane, and grass root person, who has exhibited selflessness in communal service, which have used as a veritable tool for social development.

Finally, I wish to inform the general public to discard the report. I am presently at home relaxing!

    What about the pictures of you with blood stained mouth and swollen face clad with mobile phones in your hands circulating in the media? What do you have to say about it?

        Maybe it was a scene from the movie that will be out soon.

    You have not said anything ! Tell us about the pictures of you in tears and blood. Tell us about how or if is true you visited the market and intend to buy the handsets and what went wrong. You need lies to bury another lies and will eventually come out to prove an undeniable truth.

      Do you like to drink human blood? I don’t mean wine or grape juice—I mean actual blood that’s oozing out of a human being? If so, have I got a religion for you.
      In Qadi Iyad’s “Ash-Shifa,” page 36, we read:
      **There was also a time when Malik ibn Sinan drank his blood on the Day of Uhud and licked it up. The Prophet allowed him to do that and then said, “The Fire will not touch you.”**
      So, Malik wouldn’t go to hell because he drank Muhammad’s blood. I guess any mosquitos or fleas or bedbugs that bit Muhammad is going to be in Paradise, since they drank his blood.
      **Something similar occurred when Abdullah ibn az-Zubayr drank cupped blood. [This was blood drawn from Muhammad during the Islamic practice of cupping.] The Prophet said, “Woe to you from the people and woe to the people from you,” but he did not object to what he had done.**
      The Islamic scholars at Islam Q&A give a number of additional accounts. For instance:
      **Concerning this topic there is a mursal hadeeth that was narrated by Sa’eed ibn Mansoor via Umar ibn al-Saa’ib, who said that he heard that when the Prophet was wounded, Maalik the father of Abu Sa’eed al-Khudri, sucked the wound so as to clean it until there was no blood and the whiteness of his skin showed. It was said to him: Spit it out. He said: No, by Allaah, I will never spit it out. Then he went and fought. And the Prophet said: “Whoever wants to see one of the people of Paradise, let him look at this man.” Then he was martyred.**
      Notice that, according to Muhammad, the people of Paradise are the people who are so obsessed with him that they want to drink his blood. But don’t let yet another clear case of idolizing Muhammad make us forget that Islam promotes pure reverence for Allah.
      Those of you who study Islamic doctrine may be wondering how Muslim scholars can reconcile drinking Muhammad’s blood with Islamic dietary restrictions, which forbid drinking blood.
      Fortunately, the scholars at Islam Q&A answer this for us.
      **How can the scholars reconcile between what is stated about blood being naajis [impure] and the idea of Abd-Allaah ibn al-Zubayr drinking the blood of the Prophet?
      They said: This is one of the things that applied only to the Prophet, where the ruling applied only to him and not to the rest of his ummah.**

        “Then Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, i say unto you that, except ye EAT THE FLESH OF THE SON OF MAN, AND DRINK HIS BLOOD, ye hsve no life in you” John 6:53.
        You ignorant to know the difference between Quran and Hadith and other narrations in islamic jurispuridance. Next time i challenge you to provide your reference from the Quran not history.
        I also want you to explain the above verse, DO NOT DODGE OR USE SENSE, BIBLE IS MORE SENSE THAN YOU. I EXPECT MY ANSWER FROM THE BIBLE !

        • Ade

          LOL. when Jesus said that, did he cut himself for them to drink his blood? or did they lick his wounds? you cant stop amazing me!

          Is ignorance and foolishness to ignore Hadith, without the hadith there is no Islam which is proofs ‘preservation’of Quran. Open you eyes and see the fraud in Islam bro

          • amazing2012

            You failed to answer my question. Your problem is lying, i asked you simple question and you never to dodge but you dodged.
            You did not quote any hadith, Qadi Iyad’s “Ash-Shifa,” page 36, IS NOT HADITH. You google your information from SHOEBAT CHRISTIAN SITE written on January 31, 2013 by Walid and Theodore Shoeba. If this have origin in Islam it is not pagans (Chrisitans) that will remind us.
            The more you tell lies against islam, the more its light brights. Now people will go and research to confirm your story and from that point they will see the truth and become muslims!
            EXPLAIN THIS: “Then Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, i say unto you that, except ye EAT THE FLESH OF THE SON OF MAN, AND DRINK HIS BLOOD, ye hsve no life in you” John 6:53.

            Hello, and Asalamu Alaykum. I’ve been a Muslim for 16 years but in the past few years, I’ve been bothered my some serious reoccurring issues that have repeatedly forced me to question my Islamic faith, and recently I have decided to finally leave Islam. In this video I will explain one reason why I left Islam, but there are many more reasons and I will need to make more videos to explain them all. This video talks about sexual immorality.

            First and foremost, I would like to say “thank you” to the One Creator of us all and may the glory and praise be unto Him. Secondly, I would like to say “Congratulations and Welcome Home” to Brother Ismaa’eel Abu Adam. You are clearly a very intelligent and well-versed young man, whose heart, mind and spirit have been awakened to the truth.

            Furthermore, I would like to ask ALL of our readers to pay very close attention to the “WHY” Brother Ismaa’eel left Islam. Yes, to the specific example he has given, but this is but ‘one example’ of the greater category to which he is speaking. Is he not pointing out the “flaws and inconsistencies” within his own teachings?

            There are closely regarded “techniques” for bringing the Muslim out of Islam and into the truth. Brother Ismaa’eel is outlining ‘one’ of these techniques in this video and “we” have been employing “more than one” of these techniques here at sharia unveiled for almost 5 years. But, enough about that this public forum.

            Just let me say.. please study al-Qur’an and Sunnah al-Hadith. “YOUR” knowledge on “their” scriptures is one of the vital keys to unlocking their hearts, minds and souls..

            Ahavah and Shalom.

            Ismaa’eel Abu Adam

            You have not been a muslim from the begining, you are just as what you are now. A muslim dont change his faith but those are “muslim” by birth or coincidence that can not define why they are muslims and have no knowledge about islam but claiming islam.
            It seem you are still dodging my questions, lets me list them again:
            1. “Then Jesus said unto them, verily, verily, i say unto you that, except ye EAT THE FLESH OF THE SON OF MAN, AND DRINK HIS BLOOD, ye hsve no life in you” John 6:53. EXPLAIN THIS !
            2. Why were you a mulsim before ?
            I am waiting and no dodging !
