Jim Iyke Attacks Uche Maduagwu for Suggesting He Is a Scammer, Ritualist
Nollywood actor Jim Iyke has physically attacked fellow actor Uche Maduagwu for suggesting he (Iyke) was a scammer and a ritualist. This happened after Maduagwo posted an Instagram video in which he questioned the source of Iyke’s wealth and suggested that the EFCC ought to investigate him.
Obviously irked by the video, Iyke confronted Maduagwu at an undisclosed location and pounced on him. It took the intervention of people around to prevent Iyke from further assaulting his fellow actor. But Maduagwu threatened to set the EFCC upon Iyke while hurling invectives on him.
In the offensive video, Maduagwu alleged that Iyke wears very expensive clothes imported from abroad and drives exotic cars without little to no verifiable source of income. Speaking in Pidgin English, he said the EFCC should investigate Iyke’s wealth since that was how Hushpuppi lived a lavish lifestyle in Dubai while ripping innocent people off their money.
“Look at the expensive lifestyle e dey live up and down in Lagos and Abuja,” Maduagwu queried. “Someone told me e no dey buy expensive clothes from Naija again, e now import the most expensive ones abroad. Please, what is his source of wealth again?”
He further declared that the famous actor must be a ritualist to live the kind of expensive life he lives within and outside the country.
“Money full everywhere, what are you doing for a living,” he ventured. “I am sure Jim Iyke na fraudster, or ritualist. Go and look at the car he is driving, it’s expensive. Where is he getting the money? I hear he cannot enter America because he has done wayo. Any day we meet or see, I go use my Abuja connection to beg EFCC boss to invite am, we never recover from what Hushpuppi do us, now this one is changing expensive cars up and down like Hushpuppi of the movie industry.”
