Controversial Nollywood director, Dickson Iroegbu is presently soaked in an alleged debt mess with a Nollywood producer named Alex Eyengho.
It was reported by Vanguard that Dickson ran to Alex in January 2012 when he was allegedly broke and needed some cash to settle his house rent. He was then lent the sum of N400,000 by Alex.
But like a debtor, which some in the industry allegedly tagged him to be, he refused to pay back the money borrowed from Alex. Several efforts by Alex, as Vanguard reported, to get the money back from him have been futile as Dickson was reported to be playing the ‘Maradona’ game with someone else’s hard-earned cash.
It was also reported that Dickson allegedly gave Alex dud cheques twice. During the week, police in Aguda, Surulere, reportedly arrested Dickson after Alex reported the matter to them.
Nigeriafilms.com called Dickson to get his side of the story. He picked up his phone but didn’t say any word. A text message was then sent to his phone, which he didn’t reply as at press time.
He later called to ask why we called to get his side of the story and then hanged up the phone.
