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.
Egbegbe was mobbed on Tuesday for allegedly stealing iPhones, after which he was taken to the Area F Command in Ikeja.
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.
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, He was in police custody for two days until he was arraigned on Thursday.
