This is according to a report by Encomium magazine. Actor Kalu Ikeagwu who some thought was abducted by gunmen in front of the gate of his home in the Ogba area of Lagos around 3:40 yesterday Monday, September 26th, was actually arrested by security agents following a robbery and homicide case.
Kalu who got married in June this year, was picked up by the police at his Gbagba Crescent flat, off College Road, Ogba but was later released and returned home at about 8:30 pm.
He informed his neighbours that his personal assistant had bought a stolen phone from Computer Village in Ikeja, and the thieves reportedly killed one of the victims of the robbery.
He told neighbours 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 had returned in the afternoon to drop his step daughter at home from school and had just parked his car when he received a phone call from a security agent who had been waiting for him outside his home. 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, and when he began arguing with them they brought out their guns. Some of his 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. When he returned yesterday evening, he went round neighbours to thank them and also explain what had actually happened.
