Mr Tope Babayemi, Interim Chairman of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Lagos chapter on Friday described the alleged theft of nine iPhones by Oluwaseun Olasunkanmi as shameful.
Babayemi told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the law must take its course if he is tried and found guilty.
NAN reports that Olasunkanmi popularly known as “Seun Egbegbe’’ was alleged to have stolen nine iPhones/ at the popular “Computer Village’’in Ikeja.
“For me, it’s an example of bad practice and by extent it’s an example of the kind of thing we as a society are working hard to discourage.
“At the level of the guild and association, because we are not a hundred percent settled, there are court cases and issues at the national that are affecting issues at the state chapters.
“My position as interim chairman is that no formal request has been made to us for assistance in anyway.
“As such what you do in that kind of situation is you allow the law to take its course, because law and order is paramount in building society.
“If he has been found to commit that offence, the law must take its course.’’
Babyemi advised upcoming artistes to desist from engaging in acts that could tarnash their image as well as that of the association.
