It has been reported that Embattled movie marketer and alleged fraudster Mr Seun Egbegbe has spent 100 days in prison.

“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 said.

Sequel to that, no one wants to stand as surety for Egbegbe due to the strict nature of the bail conditions. The source also had this to say

”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.”

We should recall that Seun Egbege was arrested for allegedly defrauding some Bureau De Change operatives of over N40 million, between 2016 and February 2017.

He has been granted bail since February of N5 million with two sureties each in a sum of N2.5 million.

Justice Oguntoyinbo of the Federal High Court in Lagos ruled that Mr. Egbegbe should be granted bail once he meets his bail requirements.
