Popular Nollywood actor, Kalu Ikeagwu who was said to have been kidnapped by gunmen was on the contrary, allegedly arrested over a theft case.
According to our source, the newly married actor was arrested by security agents, in front of his house around 3:40pm, following a robbery and homicide case. He explained to his neighbours that his P.A bought a
stolen phone from Computer Village in
Ikeja, and the thieves reportedly killed
one of the victims of the robbery.
He also told them that the crime
happened in Abuja, and the phone was
traced to Lagos by the security agents
who later came for him since his name and address were used during the purchase.
A neighbour told our source that his arrest was in the afternoon after
he dropped his step daughter off
from school. His car was at the
gate, as if he was on his way out again.
As soon as he stepped out of the gate, he was asked if he was Kalu Ikeagwu, and he confirmed his identity. He was politely invited, but was about arguing with them when they pulled out their guns.
Neighbours who had tried to step in, stood back as soon as they saw
the guns. He was ferried away in a bus. By the time they left, his wife was crying. When he returned, he went to his neighbours to thank them and also
explain what actually happened.
