The embattled movie producer, Seun Egbegbe, is currently under detention at Area H, Ogudu, for allegedly defrauding some bureau de change operators of $60,000.
This is coming less than two months after he was almost lynched at Computer Village, Ikeja for allegedly stealing Iphones.

He was supposed to appear before the Ikeja Magistrate’s Court next week Wednesday, before the recent incident.
Confirming the alleged fraud when contacted, Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer SP Dolapo Badmos said:
“Yes, the command in investigating him. He is under interrogation at Area H now.”
The Nation gathered that Egbegbe went to Gbagada with some of his friends under the guise that he wanted to change some dollars.
Witnesses who took to social media to share information on the incident claimed the producer lied that he was a medical doctor at Gbagada General Hospital, asking the BDC operator to come there for his money later.
However, when he was unable to provide an identity card to support his claim, the operator was said to have raised an alarm, attracting others who had him beaten before handing him over to the police.
