Seun Egbegbe Docked after 20 Months in Prison

Nollywood filmmaker, Olajide Kazeem, better known as Seun Egbegbe, will be arraigned at the Federal High court in Lagos on Monday after 20 months in prison custody.

The embattled filmmaker had failed to meet the N5m bail granted him by the Federal High Court and had remained behind the walls of the prison for over a year now.

He was thrown behind bars since February 10, 2017 after being accused of defrauding at least 40 Bureau de change operators over a period of two years (2015 to 2017).

Egbegbe, who once dated ace actress, Toyin Abraham, was first arraigned on February 10, 2017 before Justice Oluremi Oguntoyinbo, on 36 counts bordering on advance fee fraud.

The prosecuting counsel for the police, Innocent Anyigor, said Egbegbe and the other defendants acted contrary to Section 8 of the Advance Fee Fraud and Other Related Offences Act 2006 and were liable to be punished under Section 1(3) of the same Act.

The police prosecutor, Anyigor, had told the court that he had no fewer than 40 witnesses, including the BDC operators, who would testify against Egbegbe and his co-defendants in court.
