Nollywood reports say two Nollywood icons- Segun Arinze and Justus Esiri- were robbed in a London hotel last week.
According to Nigeriafilms.com, the hotel had three keys shared among the clientele, the hotel manager and the female Polish cleaner who cleaned the apartment.
The actors had been in London for a month now staging a theatre tour including ‘The King Must Dance Naked’ and other stage plays.
They had also been at the Nigeria House, Royal Theatre, Stratford, London.
On that fateful day, the actors reportedly went for their usual rehearsal.
On their return, they noticed that their belongings had been tampered with.
After a thorough check, they discovered that some valuables had grown wings and flown away.
Segun reportedly lost his Ipad while Justus Esiri was unlucky as his international passport with various visas in it, his travelling documents, laptop, cash and other valuables were stolen.
Though the matter was said to have been reported to the police, no arrest had been made yet.
“We also learnt that the hotel had no CCTV cameras to capture the alleged robbery footage.
However, on Justus Esiri’s lost passport, the Nigeria mission in the UK reportedly issued a new passport to him on self-recognition.
This, as were gathered, was done based on his National Honours of Order of the Niger (OON) award.
Segun, Justus and other cast including Olu Jacobs, Joke Silva, Bimbo Akintola and others are expected back in Nigeria on Monday, August 6, 2012,” the website reported.
