There was mild drama in Osogbo, the Osun State capital, on Wednesday evening, when some policemen attached to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID), Osogbo, arrested a popular Nollywood actress, Mercy Aigbe, for allegedly being in possession police cap in her car.
Aigbe, who was chauffeur-driven by a young man at around 4:20 p.m, in a Honda saloon car, was given a hot chase by the policemen after sighting the police cap in the gold-colour vehicle.
The security agents eventually caught up with her at the popular Olaiya junction in Osogbo, while her car was thoroughly searched by the policemen, who shot sporadically in into air.
When Aigbe was ordered out of the car, she obliged the policemen, just as her appearance drew a huge crowd of people to the scene, who jostled to catch a glimpse of her while being questioned by four policemen
In the process, the actress’s vehicle papers and phones were confiscated by the policemen, a development which made the embattled actress to put a call across to someone who spoke with one of the policemen before the vehicle papers and phone were released to her.
Another team of policemen subsequently arrived at the scene, shooting into the air to disperse the crowd.
The policemen later arrested Aigbe’s driver, before ordering the actress to enter her car while one of the policemen drove them along with the police team.
When contacted on the telephone, the State Police Public Relations Officer(PPRO), Mrs Folasade Odoro, said she was not around in the state to comment on the development.
