Olajide Kareem, also known as Seun Egbegbe, a Nollywood producer and director who was found guilty of fraud and sentenced to six years and eight months in prison in Lagos, has uploaded a video of his six-year reunion with his mother.
Egbegbe was placed on remand on February 10 after allegedly receiving money under false pretense from no less than 40 Bureaux de Change operators over the course of two years between 2015 and 2017.
He was charged with defrauding the BDC operators by saying he had naira to exchange for foreign money.
Only one of the 44 counts brought against him—Count 19—was found to be true, and Egbegbe was consequently punished.
Sharing the video, Seun thanked God and expressed how happy he was to meet her.
In the video, the mother and son were seen hugging each other as they both cried.
Reacting to the video, one Halima wrote, “Stay away from crime”
One Sandyprenuer wrote, “Awwn..she did that little snuggle on his cheeks.🥺 A mother’s love is so pure.”
One _deagram wrote, “He will now value freedom more than anything. Freedom is the most important thing human beings can have.”
Another wrote, “Freedom is very very underated 😢😢, it’s a very keen prayer that nothing comes our way that will make them take our freedom away😢”
One Sauceprince1 wrote, “Freedom at last. Mothers love for her child? I kid you not, it’s the most genuine thing you will ever experience, same as FATHERS. May God reward our parents for their labour of LOVE. And may they not be absent when we start to WIN.”
