Yoruba film-maker Seun Egbegbe was arraigned on Wednesday before an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court for stealing.
Egbegbe is standing trial for allegedly stealing nine iPhones.
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 boy 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.
Contrary to a report credited to Seun Egbegbe that he was neither arrested nor beaten by any mob, it was gathered that he was in police custody until he was arraigned on Thursday.
