Just Yesterday, Nigeria Celebrity actor Jim Iyke was rumored to have been arrested and detained by law enforcement agents at the Lagos Airport, for allegedly assaulting a flight attendant.
Jim, however, has debunked all rumors connecting him to a fight at the Murtala Muhammed Airport yesterday.
Jim, Spoke With NET Said:
“people are just amazing, the truth is that I was running late for a flight in Abuja, and my people had sent my luggage a flight ahead. I tried hard not to miss the flight, but by the time I made it to the gate, the captain had almost shut the aircraft.”
JIM IYKE FURTHER STATED SAYING:
‘One of the security guards who saw me struggling to make my way in got overzealous and got into an argument with my PA. Then they started exchanging words and pointing fingers at the heat of the moment.
At the end of the day, we couldn’t even make it (the flight) and when we were coming back, the airport assistant went to call the police and said my Personal Assistant hit his face and pushed him.
But when the policeman saw that it was me, I told them to let us go downstairs to resolve the matter, it was an issue of tempers fraying. We then went downstairs and the matter was resolved. I even boarded the same Dana Air Craft and I was shocked upon my arrival to hear that I was arrested by the Police. Which Police?’
Jim Iyke who expressed displeasure in it’s fullest said:
‘I know that people need content, but let’s not blow things out of proportion, I am not the kind of person who will post a rejoinder on issues like this, because I will be fuelling the fire, but we are all human and we lose our temper at different points in our lives, especially with how rude and unprofessional people are and more bewildering is the fact that people never want to hear the other side of the story’
