While all is going on, personnel from the Nigerian Police Force headquarters in Abuja have revealed the reason they detained Prince Kpokpogiri, the ex-boyfriend of actress Tonto Dikeh.
To get to Tonto, he allegedly bypassed police authorities, took two officers to the hotel where she was staying, and threatened to shoot her if she didn't turn over the keys to an SUV. He was arrested the following morning, on Tuesday, October 19.
At some point, according to Vanguard, the allegedly violent Kpokpogiri, who is currently under investigation by Force CID, started hurling insults and abuse on the Police officers, despite their entreaties for him to calm down.
When asked why he was arrested, the police told reporters that it was so they could question him about whether or not he actually owned the automobile in question.
