Court Frees Notorious Nollywood Film-maker from Jail After 6 Years
After spending over six years in jail, the notorious Nollywood film-maker and producer, Olajide Kareem, alias Seun Egbegbe, has been freed by a Federal High court in Lagos.

He was accused of swindling the BDC operators by claiming that he had naira to change into foreign currencies.
The 45-year-old controversial figure in the Yoruba movie industry, was arraigned by the police for alleged fraud involving N39m; $90,000 and £12,550, N39,098,100, respectively.
Egbegbe, who once managed Fuji artistes, Wale Ayinde, Tekoma and Pasuma, was accused of swindling BDC operators.
