Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, has alleged that her ex-Boyfriend, Prince Kpokpogri, put a gun to her head and threatened her life.
The actress revealed this while responding to a fan’s question on Tuesday, just as the Nigeria Police Force arrested Kpokpogri on Monday.
Dikeh said Kpokpogri needs to pay back all the money he owes her, needs to answer for putting a gun to her head, threatening her life and explain why he is in possession of over 30 illegal sex tapes of different women.
According to the mother of one, a refurbished car given to her by her ex-boyfriend which she has refused to return is not her problem, stating that she drives a Bentley, G-wagon, Lexus, Mercedes van and has a Maybach on the way.
She also stated that Kpokpogri deserves no mercy, adding that the law must be allowed to prevail.
However, police authorities at the Force headquarters, Abuja, have debunked reports that Kpokpogri was arrested at Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Abuja, because she reportedly has connection with the Deputy Inspector-General (DIG) of Police in charge of Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Bureau, Joseph Egbunike.
Rather, Kpokpogiri who is currently facing a pending investigation at Force CID, was said to have bypassed police authorities and hired two police officers attached to Maitsma Police station, took them to Transcorp Hotel and threatened to open fire at Dikeh if she did not hand over the keys of an SUV to him, the Vanguard quotes police sources as saying.
“In the confusion and argument that ensued, one of the policemen allegedly pointed his gun on the head of Tonto Dikeh, prompting the Security team at Transcorp to alert the Inspector General of Police.
“At that point the IGP, Usman Alkali Baba directed the DIG in charge FCIIB to look into the matter. DIG Egbunike subsequently deployed the Commissioner of Police in Charge Administration at Force CID, CP Umar Sanda and some police operatives to the scene.
“At the scene, Prince Kpokpogiri was said to have become violent and was allegedly raining insults and curses on the Police officers while all entreaties for him to calm down failed.
“Consequently, when DIG Egbunike was briefed about the conduct of Prince Kpokpogiri, he ordered the arrest of the Prince and the policemen that the prince came with,” the sources added.
