Police authorities at the Force headquarters in Abuja have explained why they arrested Prince Kpokpogiri, the ex-lover of Nollywood actress Tonto Dikeh.
He was arrested on Tuesday morning, October 19, after he reportedly bypassed Police authorities, took two police officers to a hotel where Tonto was lodging, and threatened to open fire at her if she did not hand over the keys to an SUV.
According to Vanguard, Kpokpogiri who is currently facing a pending investigation at Force CID, at a point became violent and was allegedly raining insults and curses on the Police officers while attempts to calm him down failed.
Consequently, when the DIG in charge of Force Criminal Intelligence and Investigation Bureau, DIG Joseph Egbunike, was briefed about the conduct of Kpokpogiri, he ordered his arrest and the policemen that he came wit
Vanguard was told that his arrest is to enable him to regain his sanity after which he would be questioned on the issue about ownership or otherwise on the vehicle in question.
Tonto Dikeh on the other hand disclosed that her ex-boyfriend Prince Kpokpogri threatened her life by putting a gun to her head hence he has to answer to the law among other things.
Tonto Dikeh allegedly got Prince Kpokpogri arrested after he created a scene over his car and a follower reacting to that asked Tonto Dikeh to give her ex-boyfriend his car so that peace can prevail.
According to Tonto Dikeh, she wants all her belongings that are in his possessions returned and she will also give him back his Lexus SUV as she has even better cars than that and wouldn’t need any of that for anything now.
