Nollywood star Jim Iyke brutalizes gay activist who accused him of fraud
Nollywood actor Jim Iyke, has physically brutalized his colleague and gay activist, Uche Maduagwu, who accused him of indulging in fraudulent activities.
A video that is now making rounds on social media shows Mr Iyke in a very angry state as he physically assaults Mr Maduagwu at a yet to be confirmed location in Lagos.
Recall that on August 20, Mr Maduagwu in a video on his Instagram page questioned the source of Mr Iyke’s wealth while he insinuated that the actor was engaged in fraudulent activities. He referred to him as the “Hushpuppi of Nollywood”.
“Pls nobody should beg me on this matter because I have already made up my mind on this issue. Is Jim Iyke the only one in nollywood? Look at the expensive lifestyle he lives up and down Lagos and Abuja, please what is the source of his wealth again?” he mockingly asked.
The actor further threatened to use his influence to trigger an invite for Mr Iyke from the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to clarify the source of his wealth.
“Any day we see, I will use my Abuja connect to beg EFCC boss to invite him,” he threatened.
Comparing Jim Iyke to the embattled internet fraudster Hushpuppi, Mr Maduagwu added, “we have not recovered from what Hushpuppi did to us now this one is changing cars up and down like the Hushpuppi of the movie industry.”
In the video, Mr Iyke told Mr Maduagwu, “You think I won’t find you, I troll in real life?” just before he tugged at Mr Maduagwu’s shirt and threw a punch at him
