Gist has it that other members of the association whose names were mentioned were Femi Adebayo and Sodiq Adebayo both children of former national president of ANTP, Adebayo Salami aka Oga Bello. They were however pardoned based on what our source described as their father’ s influence.
Gist has it that the banned movie artistes may be paying for showing loyalty to Kunle Afod who has continued to publicly declare that he opposed to the leadership of ANTP and a member of the rival group called One House.
Interestingly, virtually all the banned artistes featured in Kunle Afod’s latest movie entitled ˜Ina Eso’ which has just been shot.
