The police have explained that one Prince Kpokpogri, the ex-lover of Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh, was arrested on Monday for attempting to cause a breach of peace at the Transcorp Hilton Hotel, Maitama, Abuja.
The suspect was said to have visited the luxury hotel with two police guards in an effort to retrieve a Lexus SUV parked by Dikeh, who had lodged there.
He allegedly blocked the vehicle with his car and when cautioned, his police escort reportedly threatened to shoot a female worker of the hotel.
The hotel management subsequently invited the police who whisked all the parties to the Federal Criminal Investigation and Intelligence Department, for further questioning.
Joseph Egbunike, the Deputy Inspector-General of Police, FCIID, , said he directed a Commissioner of Police to arrest Kpokpogri following reports of a threatening situation at the hotel.
According to him, the police escorts were being detained for failing to bring the situation at the hotel under control, adding that Kpokpogri has been released on bail.
Dikeh and her ex-lover have been making the news lately following their messy break-up with the latter accusing the actress of promiscuity while she described him as a blackmailer.
The DIG dismissed reports that he arrested Kpokpogri to please Tonto Dikeh.He stated, “I only met the suspect and complainant for the first time yesterday (Monday); I don’t know where they came from.
This simply has to do with the criminal issue that happened at Transcorp Hilton Hotel. We went there to do a threat analysis that somebody was trying to cause a situation there.“So, I sent my commissioner to go and bring them only to be surprised to see the two parties. We interviewed them and detained my policemen who were there and could not contain the situation. They are in the cell now. I know by today, everybody must have calmed down and reflected on what they did and what they did not do.”
