Davido says Mr Real should bail Seun Egbegbe from prison for making money from using Seun’s theft to make Legbgbe song

make Legbgbe song

Davido is of the opinion that musician, Mr Real (Legbegbe crooner), should bail incarcerated film maker, Seun Egbegbe after making money off his name.

Egbegbe has spent 20 months in prison over his inability to meet his bail conditions.

Davido made it clear if he were in Mr Real’s shoes, he would have bailed Seun Egbebe.

He dropped the comment after Tunde Ednut threw shade at Mr Real for making money off another person’s crime, and name, not his own crime.

Tunde reposted a tweet by veteran actor, Ayo Shonaiya above his shade which read

“Seun Egbegbe has been on remand in jail for 20months because he couldn’t meet N5m bail condition. Meanwhile, a song about his (alleged) theft of iPhones has made well over N50m in Royalties. #Life”

 

Mr Real’s song, Legbebe is one of the biggest tracks of 2017/2018.

Though Mr Real has denied the song is about Seun Egbegbe but the song references Seun Egbegbe’s iPhone theft and he even mentioned his name in the song.

Seun was beaten in computer village Ikeja after he was caught trying to make away with 8 iPhones.

About a month later, he was arrested for trying to swindle Bureau The Change operators of thousands of dollars.

Since then, he has been in jail, unable to meet his bail conditions.

Watch video of Mr Real’s Legbegbe below.

Peter Ayodele Fayose

@GovAyoFayose


This is the entrance to Ekiti Govt House now blocked by gun wielding mobile policemen. The plan is to prevent our victory walk slated for today but we will remain undeterred.

Power of God and the people will prevail over Federal Power.

We don’t want to rubbish Fayose

The DIG Operations also told newsmen that the police is not in Ekiti state to usurp Governor Fayose’s authority.

Joshak said “We are not here to usurp the authority of Governor Fayose. We are not here to rubbish him because he represents the people

“But we are not going to allow any authorized rally that can trigger violence in the state. You can see that the state is tensed up.

“As law enforcement agents, we must be proactive and take actions that can prevent crisis rather than trying to quell it after it might have broken out.

“Because of the tense situation, we had to do what we did. We heard that His Excellency (Fayose) was doing something in the Government House, the cyclists narrowed the road but we won’t go and block his place.

“We don’t want people to gather and start another rally because dispersing them with smoke is not the best. The pre-emptive measure was okay.

“It is better to be pre-emptive by ensuring that the situation did not degenerate.”

“How Compliance And Monitoring Team Killed My Husband” – Akwa Ibom Woman Narrates

Tags : 

Fourteenth day of April was a bleak day for Mrs Akaninyene Nnonno, a mother of five and petty trader in Akwa Ibom State as the news of the untimely death of her husband, a 38-year-old tricycle operator ‘hit’ her.

Mrs Nnonno a 34-year-old pregnant mother was said to have been made a widow by the activities of the Compliance and Monitoring Team (ticket sellers) of the Akwa Ibom State Ministry of Transport and Petroleum.

This happened less than a year after the untimely death of Mrs Anwanabasi Eshiet, a mother of two who died in the brutal hands of the monitoring team of the same ministry in the state.

Recounting her loss, the young widow lamented that her husband’s untimely death had truncated the future they both planned for their children.

The petty trader who recounted that her husband met his untimely death shortly after dropping off her goods at the market, lamented that life was only made easier for her, especially with her present condition, with the care, assistance and support of her husband.

“I was told that some of these ticket sellers were chasing an AKTC bus driver who knocked down my husband while attempting to flee”.

“Shortly after dropping off my daughter and some goods, I asked my husband to bring to me to the market, my husband’s friend came and asked me to follow him, that my husband had an accident. We were initially informed he was taken to TOAN office, when we got there, I was handed his torn shirt and wallet, but he was not there”.

“We were later directed to the Police Station, Itam, when we got there, we were told that he was later taken to the hospital, that we should wait for the DPO. We waited till the man finally arrived hours later. He informed me that my husband was dead. I have not been allowed to see his corpse, but they told me that he was hit on the chest and forehead, and that he was taken to one mortuary along Atiku Abubakar Way”.

” I don’t know how to start or continue my life from here, we were struggling together to care for these children, now look at my condition, look at the hardship their reckless attitude has put me and my children through,” she lamented.

Narrating the circumstances which led to the death of his member, the state chairman, Tricycle Owners Association of Nigeria (TOAN), Mr Effiong Effiong said his deceased
member met his untimely death along Urua Ekpa road while bending by the side of the road to fix a fault in his keke.

He recounted that the Compliance and Monitoring Task Team were chasing an AKTC driver, who in an attempt to flee knocked down the innocent Tricycle rider by the side of the road.

Effiong who disclosed that his association has been liaising with the state ministry of Transport and Petroleum to secure some assistance to the bereaved family, however promised to push hard to ensure that the pregnant widow is well cared for.

The TOAN chairman disclosed that the AKTC bus driver had been arrested by the polic and must be made to face the full weight of the law.

When contacted, the Commissioner for Transport and Petroleum, Mr Orman Esin described what happened as an accident.

“What happened was an accident involving a driver, members of our team and the victim. However, we have met with the bereaved family and we have discussed on how to assist the family and everyone is satisfied and happy,” he said.

The Police Public Relations officer, DSP McDon Odiko when contacted promised to confirm any arrest in connection with the case, but failed to get back to our correspondent as promised.

While the ministry may be warming up to bury yet another innocent Akwa Ibom son and probably an envelop handed over as compensation for the loss of a husband, father of five and son to an aged parents, many have risen in outright condemnation of the reckless attitude of members of the monitoring teams of the Ministry.

A keke rider who does not want his name in print said, ” Please help us tell the commissioner for Transport to call his wild dogs to order. All our papers are complete, but why are we always the victim whenever they chase vehicles, and why on earth should they be chasing drivers in a busy city like Uyo? They should know that innocent people would always fall victims of such recklessness.”
