Apparently, in shame and society reprisal, Ebony Movies Chief Executive, Seun Egbegbe, arraigned for stealing phones has poisoned himself shortly after his bail from Kirikiri Prisons was perfected yesterday.
A reliable source hinted Slickson that Seun was downcast and helpless. The shame of guilt must have made him drink a poisonous substance. He could not believe or live with the shame, the source who craved anonymity revealed.
“His relations have since called doctors in to attend to him. I don’t know if he has survived it but he is being attended to as I’m talking to you.
Two medical doctors with a popular hospital in Ikeja, according to the source immediately moved to his residence in Ikeja to attend to him after the hospital was called early this morning.
