Nollywood actress, Uche Jombo, Van Vicker, and several members of their film crew were arrested and detained early this morning at Bode Thomas Police Station in Lagos. The crew had been shooting scenes at Censors Police Station, when men from Bode Thomas Police Station took them away without explanation. Also detained along with Uche and Van Vicker are Bobby Obodo, and Yolanda Okereke.
Two weeks ago, Van Vicker was arrested in Lagos for possessing arms, which we later gathered were some of the props he intended to use while shooting a movie. Uche Jombo was reported to have fought for his release by men of the State Security Services (SSS) in Lagos, where he was held overnight.
Uche Jumbo confirmed the news when she tweeted about the incident. Here are the tweets
