Nollywood actor, Jim Iyke, was, this afternoon Monday August 27, 2018, arrested by the policemen at the Lagos airport, after he slapped a staff of Dana Air.
According to Instablog9ja, the ‘badboy’ actor got angry after discovering he had missed his flight to Abuja.
According to sources at the Lagos airport the actor had missed his flight to Abuja, after arriving at the airport late and he got angry. However, when a security staff of the airline was trying to profile him (search him), Iyke gave him a slap, perhaps because he thought the security officer was delaying him further after he arrived late.
The management of Dana airline immediately called in the airport policemen and Iyke was whisked away.
Dana Air’s Media and Communications Manager, Kingsley Ezenwa, who confirmed to the incident, said Iyke was, however, released, after he had apologised to the airline employee.
Ezenwa added that the actor eventually missed the flight, which was still on ground when the incident happened.
The Public Relations Officer, Airport Command, Alabi Joseph, a Deputy Superintendent of Police, also confirmed the incident, saying that Iyke was released after he tendered an apology.
