Olajide Kareem, popularly known as Seun Egbegbe, has spoken on his time in prison and also on his relationship with his former lover Toyin Abraham.
Naija recalls that Egbegbe was released after spending about six years in prison.
The socialite who was famous over his love affair with Toyin Abraham was reportedly abandoned by his friends after his travails began.
During a recent interview with BBC, Seun said his incarceration was a blessing in disguise as it helped him differentiate his enemies from his true friends.
He opined that if he had not gone to prison he would have lived a worthless life with the belief that those around him are his friends.
He said: “Those I thought were my friends before I had that issue, I found out were my enemies after I returned from prison. None of my explanations will be acceptable to some people, and they will keep saying it’s a lie because there are too many enemies around me, but I thank God for life.
“I believe God made me go to where I went for a purpose because my eyes were open to a few things while I was there. The crime I was incarcerated for six years over, I didn’t commit, but I am happy I went there to know what living on earth means. 95% of the people surrounding me were enemies, not my friends. If this had not happened, I would have lived a worthless life because I believe those around me are my friends.”
When asked about his relationship with his former lover, the ex-convict said that he would like to respect her marriage and not speak about her.
He said, “I do not want to say anything about Toyin Abraham. Let us respect her. She is married with a kid, and I am happy for her. May the devil never separate her from her husband.”
Egbegbe was incarcerated on 10 February 2017, while his trial officially began on 10 May 2017, with over 30 BDC operators storming the court to testify against him.
The police said that he fraudulently obtained money from no fewer than 40 Bureau De Change operators in Lagos from 2015 to 2017.
