Actress Toyin Aimakhu’s former boyfriend Seun Egbegbe, has been arrested by the Area F Police Command in Ikeja for stealing phones at Computer Village in Ikeja, Lagos.
An eyewitness said Egbegbe stole the phones from Keelcech Innovations, a store in Computer Village, around 9:30am on Tuesday.
Egbegbe, who reportedly stole two iPhone 7 and some iPhone 6+, attempted to make away with the gadgets before he was apprehended by the sales attendant and other workers in the store.
He was about to board a cab when the attendant and others rushed outside to stop him in his tracks, the eyewitness said.
After being caught, it was discovered that Egbegbe had already handed the iPhone 7 to his accomplice who successfully escaped.
Another witness said this is not his first time and that after stealing the phones, he escapes.
Egbegbe was beaten to a pulp by the traders before he was handed over to the police.
Toyin Aimakhu dated Egbegbe shortly after her separation from Adeniyi Johnson, her ex-husband.
The affair with Egbegbe was notably tumultuous before it eventually hit the rocks.
