Earlier yesterday, Toyin Aimakhu’s ex-boyfriend, Seun Egbegbe was
accused of stealing iPhones at Computer Village and was allegedly beaten
by an angry mob. Read here if
you missed it. He has now released a statement denying he stole iPhone
as was widely reported. In a statement released to journalists, he said:
“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

public; it also portrays traces of campaign of calumny by some mercenary
hirelings hell bent in destroying my name, for reasons best known to
“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 I phone 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!”
