Interim Chairman of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Lagos Chapter, Tope Babayemi, on Friday described the alleged theft of nine iPhones by Oluwaseun Olasunkanmi as shameful.
Babayemi, a columnist with Qed.ng, said that the law must take its course if the suspect, who was arraigned before an Ikeja Magistrate’s Court on Thursday, is found guilty.
Olasunkanmi popularly known as “Seun Egbegbe” was alleged to have stolen nine iPhones at the Computer Village, in Ikeja on Tuesday.
“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.
“If he has been found to commit that offence, the law must take its course.’’
Babayemi advised up and coming artistes to desist from engaging in acts that could tarnish their image as well as that of the association.
