The trial of Yoruba Movie-maker, Seun Egbegbe over allegations that he stole nine iPhones from popular computer village in Lagos was stalled as police failed to produce the suspect in court.

Egbegbe was arraigned before Magistrate Aje Afunwa on a one-count charge of stealing in November and granted a bail in the sum of N1 million and two sureties in like sum.

The trial was slated for trial but was subsequently adjourned to April 12, 2017.

Last week, Egbegbe and his entourage, Ayo Oyekan lured one Isa Adamu and Abdullahi Haruna, both Bureau de Change members, from different locations that they needed $9,000 and £3,000, both summing to over N6m at black market.

Egbegbe disguised as the MD of Gbagada General Hospital where he was arrested while his accomplice Ayo, acted as a patient.

Lagos Police Public Relations Officer, Dolapo Badmus, had initially confirmed that the film producer is still in detention since he was arrested for the forex scam at Gbagada General Hospital last week but will be made available to appear in court for his previous case of alleged theft at Computer Village.

Egbegbe is presently held in Police custody at Area H Command in Ogudu, Lagos for the N6m fraud act and will appear in court for the recent attempted fraud case at Ogudu Magistrate Court this Friday.
