Not too long ago, the video of a young Nigerian lady putting glass cups, drinks and other things she could find on the table inside her bag served rounds on social media.
The video went viral online and as a result of the somewhat kleptomania feature of it, negative comments were issued towards the lady.
The video also resulted to her being wanted by the police as ACP, Yomi Shogunle took to his Twitter page to place a bounty on her head.
However, after a little investigation, it turns out that the lady is an actress and has also been identified as Akhigbe E Gloria (age) on Facebook.
The actress came out to say that she was only acting as people around her were aware that a video was going on – she didn’t conclude there, she went on to reveal that there were other top Yoruba actresses who shared the same table with her.
Still disgruntled that people think she is a thief, the actress added that she has received several awards but the pictures did not go viral only for her to be acting at a party and everyone had something to say.
She gave a statement, saying,
“And I wonder how videos of movie clips I’ve featured in and the ones I am not, posted on social media by me never went viral. Pictures of awards I’ve received so far as an actress never went viral, be that I posted it or not.
