Life in Prison : Friends abandon Seun Egbegbe, leave him to bear his cross alone!

Embattled movie marketer and alleged fraudster, Seun Egbegbe has spent 100 days in prison according to reports.

The lanky showbiz promoter continues to wane in the general cell of
Ikoyi prisons where he has taken residence. Family and friends of
Egbegbe have not been able to secure his bail.

According to a source close to Egbegbe, friends and benefactors have abandoned him, leaving him to bear his cross alone;

“Now, the frequency of people visiting him in the prison has reduced
drastically. All his friends and followers have deserted him. 

They are afraid of being implicated. It is only his heavily pregnant
girlfriend, Nikky Berry and his parents that visit him now.  

They still prepare his food from home. Most of his girlfriends and those
he supports financially have deserted him. Nikky is the only girl left
with him now” the source said.

In addition, no one wants to stand as surety for Egbegbe due to the strict nature of the bail conditions.

According to the source:

”Things are not as expected at all. He earlier thought it was a child’s
play. It’s now he understands better the kind of situation he is in. I
learnt that his family has since been running from pillar to post to get
him out of detention, but their efforts are yet to yield the desired
results as nobody is ready to stand as surety for him because of the
stringent conditions attached.” 

Recall that Seun Egbege was arrested for allegedly defrauding some
Bureau De Change operatives of over N40 million, between 2016 and
February 2017.

He has been granted bail since February of N5 million with two sureties each in a sum of N2.5 million.
