Nollywood Lovers Assault Journalist At LTV 8, Threaten To Kill Him Spiritually
Nollywood lovers; Kunle Adegbite and Biodun Okeowo, threw caution in the air on Sunday when they allegedly assaulted a journalist with City People magazine, Gbolahan Adetayo, over a story he wrote about them.
The young journalist had written a story about the lovers in his column that they would soon get married, which didn't go down well with the lovers.
A source, who witnessed the show of shame by the lovers, told Nollywoodgists.com that the duo allegedly threatened to deal with the movie writer spiritually.
This was after the lovers had allegedly beaten and tore the journalist's shirt at the celebrity hangout, causing him a public embarrassment. Gbolahan was allegedly beaten like a kid in the presence of some other journalists and celebrities who were at LTV 8 premises in Alausa, Ikeja, by the embittered lovers.
The source said, "they both even went to the extent of threatening to 'kill Gbolahan spiritually'. They allegedly spoke in Yoruba that "wo, ma pa e danu. La ti o ni lo, mo pe o safe o. Ti mo ba le ba e ja lojukoroju, mo pe ma ba e ja togun togun" (See, I will kill you. Henceforth, know that you are not safe. If I can fight with you physically, then know that I can go spiritually).
Our source wondered why would Kunle and his lover threaten to kill a journalist over an innocent, non-libelous story which they also publicly admitted is known to everyone.
Our source said the journalist has reported the matter to the police and may press for charges against the Nollywood lovers. Efforts to contact the duo of Kunle and Biodun proved abortive as at press time. A source close to them told Nollywoodgists.com that they are in Abeokuta, Ogun State, on a movie location.
However, Gbolahan Adetayo confirmed the story to us when contacted on phone. He said the matter has been reported to the police for investigation.
We would follow up the story and update you with more information as they unfold.
Below is the 'controversial' story;
