Nigerian star actor, Kalu Ikeagwu was yesterday, September 26th, 2016 arrested by security agents following a robbery and homicide case. According to Encomium Magazine, he was arrested in front of the gate of his house in Ogba area of Lagos around 3:40 that afternoon.
The report further revealed that the newly married actor, who returned home to his Gbagba Crescent flat, off College Road, around 8:30 pm, explained to his worried neighbours that his personal assistant bought a stolen phone from Computer Village in Ikeja, and the thieves reportedly killed one of the victims of the robbery.
Ikeagwu is said to have further revealed that the crime happened in Abuja, and the phone was traced to Lagos by the security agents who later came for him since his address and name were used during the purchase.
He was said to have received a call from one of the operatives who had been waiting for him. And as soon as he stepped out of the gate, he was asked if indeed he was Kalu Ikeagwu, and he confirmed his identity.
He was politely invited, but was about arguing with them when they brought out their guns. Neighbours who had tried to step in, stood back as soon as they saw the guns. He was ferried away in a bus. By the time they left, his wife was crying.
He was later released by the operatives.
