Embattled Lagos socialite and movie marketer, Seun Egbegbe who was romantically linked to Nollywood actress, Toyin Aimakhu has reportedly been abandoned by friends behind bars after he was arrested for attempting to dupe two BDC operators in Lagos of over N40 million.
The movie marketer who was earlier arrested for attempting to make away with 9 Apple iPhones from a shop in Computer village, Ikeja, Lagos has reportedly spent a total of 100 days in prison as his friends are afraid to associate themselves with him.
Seun Egbegbe who has been in the general cell of Ikoyi prisons has been unable to secure bail as close sources to the marketer revealed that the frequency of visits he gets has since thinned down.
A close source to the embattled marketer said: “Now, the frequency of people visiting him in the prison has reduced drastically. All his friends and followers have deserted him.
“They are afraid of being implicated. It is only his heavily pregnant girlfriend, Nikky Berry and his parents that visit him now.
“They still prepare his food from home. Most of his girlfriends and those he supports financially have deserted him. Nikky is the only girl left with him now.”
The source further added that nobody wants to stand as a surety for the marketer due to the strict nature of the bail conditions.
“Things are not as expected at all. He earlier thought it was a child’s play. It’s now he understands better the kind of situation he is in. I learnt that his family has since been running from pillar to post to get him out of detention, but their efforts are yet to yield the desired results as nobody is ready to stand as surety for him because of the stringent conditions attached.”
This comes after Seun Egbegbe was granted bail in the sum of N5million with two sureties each in a sum of N2.5 million by Justice Oguntoyinbo of the Lagos Federal High Court in February.
