Police Arrest Seun Egbegbe’s Younger Brother
Seun Egbegbe has implicated his younger brother in the ongoing criminal case he is facing.
Lawal Kareem, who is reportedly the younger brother of the Nollywood producer, has been arrested alongside two others, Olalekan Yusuf, and Muyideen Shoyombo.
Seun Egbegbe who was arrested with one Oyekan Ayomide in February for attempting to dupe Isa Adamu of the sums of $9,000 and £3,000 about 10 million Naira pleaded not guilty to a 40-count charge when they were arraigned.
They are being held in custody after they failed to meet bail conditions.
Following the arrest of the three new suspects, the State Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department (SCIID) of the Lagos State Police Command on Monday, amended the charges to include the new suspects arrested in connection with the criminal offenses against Olajide Oluwaseun Kareem, popularly known as Seun Egbegbe.
According to the amended charge sheet, the three were involved only in counts one and two, which accused them of conspiring to obtain the sum of 2,450,000 Naira and 3,000 Pounds sterling from the plaintiff.
Kareem, who spoke to reporters when he was paraded at the police command in Ikeja, denied his involvement in his brother’s criminal acts, adding that Egbegbe only wanted to incriminate him.
'On the day Seun was arrested at Ikeja, it was my boss that told me that he saw the story on Facebook and went to Area F to see him,' Mr. Kareem said.
'But after then, he was charged to court and I didn’t go to see him, only for me to receive an SMS from him saying that he heard I was partying while he was languishing in prison,” he added.
Seun Egbegbe still has a case to answer after stealing 9 iPhones in November of last year.
