In an interview with Nigerian Tribune, he revealed how it all started
    It is a long story. What they did tarnished my image. It really hurt me. Theatre is the only way I make money and when my films hit Idumota, it makes the most sales in the industry. I make money from my rental business and as a master of ceremony within and outside Nigeria. The incident affected all that.

I just got back from London about a month before then, from a movie production with Sanyeri. I was at the airport that day with my sibling and a friend.
