Area boys in Lagos attack actor, Akeem Adeyemi, at movie location


Nollywood Yoruba actor, Akeem Adeyemi, better known as Sugar boy, has been brutally harassed by touts, otherwise known as area boys at a movie location.

This was made known by his colleague, Wumi Toriola, who raised the alarm over the mistreatment meted out on him while filming at Sawmill, Gbagada in Lagos.

Taking to her verified Instagram page to share a disturbing video of the actor with bloody eyes, she lamented the development and appealed to well-meaning Nigerians to come to their rescue.

She wrote, “see what area boys did. To what end. Peaceful filming turned this. Help. Sawmill Gbagada.”

Sharing the latest developments about the ugly incident on Wednesday morning, Veteran Nollywood actor, Adebayo Salami, popularly known as Oga Bello, disclosed that the culprits have been apprehended by the officers of the law.

According to him, the act is totally condemnable, unacceptable, and should not be allowed to be swept under the carpet. He also charged the Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Practitioners Association of Nigeria, TAMPAN to rise to the occasion and look into the matter.
