The Interim Chairman of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Lagos chapter, Tope Bababyemi, on Friday has described the alleged phone theft of Oluwaseun Olasunkanmi, otherwise known as Seun Egbegbe as shameful.
Babayemi said the AGN would not wade into the matter, rather the law must take its course if he is tried and found guilty.
Olasunkanmi popularly known as “Seun Egbegbe’’ was alleged to have stolen nine iPhones at the Computer Village, in Ikeja.
Reacting to the development, Babayemi said, “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 level 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,” he told newsmen on Friday.
“If he has been found to commit that offence, the law must take its course.’’
Babyemi enjoined upcoming artistes not to engage in acts that could tarnish their image as well as that of the movie industry, globally known as Nollywood.
