Nollywood Actor, Segun Arinze, has finally spoken up about a viral video circulating on social media of his assault on his security guard who has been identified as Isaiah Dauda.
The Nollywood veteran was seen chasing his security guard on the streets of Chevyview Estate, Lekki in the video.
A twitter user with the handle @CloakedAdonis had posted the video on Monday. In his caption, Segun allegedly attacked his domestic staff because he broke the burglary of his house and also used his car without his consent.
“He said the boy removed the burglary proof and used his car without informing him or so,”@CloakedAdonis tweeted.
Nonetheless, when speaking with ‘The Punch’ on Monday evening, the actor claimed that he was not a trouble maker and that there is no way he could've taken to the street to assault his security guard.
“Isaiah has been working with me for over a year, I take him as a younger brother, and I never treated him like a staff, but his excesses are too much
“He leaves his duty post at will without informing anyone in the house.
“He has left the gate open, unguarded countless times. I have spoken, counselled, gotten angry many times, to no avail.
“On Sunday, he left the house without informing me; he returned on Monday afternoon, saying he went for a party and forgot my gate key at his friend’s house
“At that point, I couldn’t bottle up my anger any longer, so, I slapped him.”
“It is sad that the man who filmed the incident couldn’t spare some time to ask what led to the public outrage
“Everybody in the neighbourhood knows me as a peace-loving resident.”
