The story of Yourba film maker, Seun Egbegbe, who was accused of stealing nine iPhones at Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos earlier this week was received with shock by many.
According to the owner of the shop, Kaaltech Innovations, where the incident occured and some eyetwitnesses who spoke with The Punch, Egbegbe had no intention of paying for the phones.
The shop owner Kolawole Aleshinloye in a telephone interview said the incident happened in his absence, but the matter was with the police.
“At this point, I am out of town and I told them to lock my store. I came around yesterday and witnessed everything. I put down my statement at Area F Police Command. The case is with the police. I told them to lock my store because my boy was wounded and he is currently at the hospital. My secretary has gone to the police station upon invitation. Anything you want, just go to Area F police command and ask for the IPO in charge.
