Nollywood Actor Odunlade Odukola Beats/Detains Student
Yoruba 'thuggery' actor and Glo brand ambassador, Odunlade Adekola, as
he acted in 'Sunday Dagboru', recently threw caution into the air when
he and his thugs allegedly beat up and eventually detained some
students of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic (MAPOLY), Abeokuta, Ogun State.
We scooped that the incident, which happened on Sunday, April 21,
2013, at about 8pm, around Adigbe area of the city, psychologically
destroyed the affected students who were before then preparing for
their exams on Monday.
Investigation by Nigeriafilms.com indicates that not only four
students were mercilessly beaten by the popular actor, a civil defence
officer was also pounced on by Odun and his thugs who he ordered to
ruthlessly deal with. He also ordered the beating of the students for
daring to talk when he was talking.
Trouble reportedly started on Sunday when the students protestedthat
Odun and his crew; Fausat Balogun, Ebun Oloyede known as Olaiya Igwe
and some others, to put-off a 'noisy' generator because it was
disturbing their reading for an exam the next day.
Odun then reportedly told the students, whose building was next to
where Odun and his crew were using for a movie shoot, to dare talk
again and get a bitter reward for that. He also allegedly threatened
to deal with anyone who violates his order.
Not intimidated by Odun's order, the students insisted the generator
must be put-off because it was constituting a nuisance to them. But
rather than be a gentleman, Odun allegedly ordered his thugs to beat
life out of the 'defiant' students.
Even a civil defence officer, who reportedly tried to restore peace,
was not left out of Odun's 'largesse' as he was beaten black and blue
At about 10pm on Sunday, some police from Adigbe Police Station
allegedly arrested the students afterOdun had begged them to teach the
students a lesson for dis-obeying the'orders of a popular movie star'.
They were later released after landlords association of the area intervened.
As we now hear, Odun and the students have been summoned for a meeting
by the landlords body on Saturday.
Effort by Nigeriafilms.com to get Odun to react to the allegations
were frustrated by him as he didn't pick our calls or reply to our
text message sent to him on the matter.
Some of the students in the area confirmed the story to
Nigeriafilms.com. They said it was not the first time Odun was
involvingin such a shameful act.
"He keeps saying none of us can attain the heights he has reached,"
one of the aggrieved students told Nigeriafilms.com.
Our investigation is still ongoing as we promise to bring report of
the meeting with the landlords later.
