Popular Nigerian comic actor, Onyebuchi Ojieh better known as Buchi has reacted to a viral video of his wife, Rukky being arrested by the police.
The comedian’s wife, Rukky was arrested by men of the Nigeria Police Force, after she allegedly harassed the estate security personnel and vandalized items which she was charged N700,000 for by the estate, but she and her husband reportedly refused to pay for.
It was gathered that Rukky was arrested following the altercation on the charges of assault and vandalism.
However, the comedian has now reacted to the allegations levied against his wife, describing the incident as a gang up against his wife. He noted that although she was taken to the police station, he was able to get her out before the next morning.
Narrating what led to the altercation, Buchi stated that the issue began after his younger brother fought the estate security who harassed his niece.
He alleged that after he informed the estate management that he will be suing them after being fined, his power supply was cut off.
Buchi said after his wife went to the estate chairman’s house and demanded that the power supply be restored, residents of the association ganged up against his wife, and destroyed her vehicle.
In an exclusive interview with PUNCH, he was quoted saying,
“I would not want to go into it but I will just want to say that all the allegations are lies. We had an altercation with the estate because one of the security men beat up my niece. My younger brother fought the guy and they fined us. I disagreed because we needed to go into the reason for the altercation; the security people harassed a tenant. They should not fine me because my younger brother defended my niece as I was not around when it happened. They fined us and I said that is not right.
“I initiated legal action and I informed the estate that I will take the matter to court. They said that since I was taking the estate to court, they will not provide power. I am not around and I had already told my wife not to make any trouble with them. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic courts are not sitting so we cannot institute any action. I have a ten-year-old daughter and the heat was getting unbearable for her so my wife went to demand that they should give restore the power, that was part of the video online, this led her to go to the estate association president’s house.
“I think what really caused the problem was that she went to the estate association president’s house and she said that she and her children were not going to leave until they restored the power. That was what caused everything. In the process of trying to eject her, they got into an altercation. My younger brother had to step in. The president cried foul to the members of the association and it turned to a mob and they started manhandling my wife. They went ahead to destroy her car. I have video evidence. I am asking, what did her car do to them? Currently, I am not around but I have been making calls. They took her to the police station but I was able to get her out last night. My wife never embarrassed me in public. She did not sleep at the police station. It was a gang up against my wife.”
