It’s the second time the self-acclaimed marketer will be detained in three months.
Seun was mobbed and arrested in November 2016 when he tried stealing nine iPhones at Computer Village in Ikeja.
And he’s expected to appear before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court over the theft case Monday, February 8.
But yesterday, the ex-lover of Nollywood actress Toyin Aimakhu was arrested at the general hospital in Gbagada, Lagos,
This was after trying to dupe bureau de change operators of millions of naira while pretending to be a medical doctor.
The press statement released by the state’s Police PRO reads: ‘One Seun Karim, a.k.a. Egbegbe, and one Ayo Oyekan, disguised as the MD of Gbagada General Hospital and the other as a patient.
‘They lured one Alhaji Isa Adamu and Abdullahi Haruna, both Bureau de Change members, from different locations, that they needed US9,000 dollars (2,742,750 by official rate) and £3,000 pounds (N1,142,995 by official rate).
The amount Seun and his entourage tried scamming the businessmen of, N 3.8m going by official exchange (over N6m at the black market), is lower than the N10m widely reported when the news broke.
They are now under detention at Area H in Ogudu, Lagos.
Despite all the facts, Seun Egbegbe’s manager denied the reports saying ‘Nothing of such’ happened.
Meanwhile, Seun and his entourage are presently being investigated for fraud and impersonation.
