Nigeriafilms.com has exclusively gathered from good authorities that 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 protested that 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 by Odun.
At about 10pm on Sunday, some police from Adigbe Police Station allegedly arrested the students after Odun 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 involving in 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.
