Nigerian Comedian Buchi Reacts To Viral Video Of Wife Being Arrested.
Nigerian comedian Buchi has reacted to a viral video of his wife Rukky being arrested by the Nigeria Police Force after an altercation at their estate association president’s house.
It was alleged that the estate had charged Buchi’s wife Rukky N700,000 for allegedly harassing the estate security personnel and vandalizing items in the estate.
In an interview with punch newspaper, the comedian reacted to the claim, saying it’s all a lie. He went on to say that his younger brother was the one that fought the estate security who first harassed his niece.
He further went o to say that his power was cut off after he told the estate management that he would be suing them after being fined.
“I would not want to go into it, but I will just want to say that all the allegations are lies. We had an altercation with the estate because one of the security men beat up my niece. My younger brother fought the guy, and they fined us. I disagreed because we needed to go into the reason for the altercation; the security people harassed a tenant. They should not fine me because my younger brother defended my niece as I was not around when it happened. They fined us, and I said that is not right.
“I initiated legal action, and I informed the estate that I will take the matter to court. They said that since I was taking the estate to court, they will not provide power. I am not around, and I had already told my wife not to make any trouble with them. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, courts are not sitting, so we cannot institute any action. I have a ten-year-old daughter, and the heat was getting unbearable for her, so my wife went to demand that they should give restore the power that was part of the video online. This led her to go to the estate association president’s house.
“I think what really caused the problem was that she went to the estate association president’s house, and she said that she and her children were not going to leave until they restored the power. That was what caused everything. In the process of trying to eject her, they got into an altercation. My younger brother had to step in. The president cried foul to the members of the association, and it turned to a mob, and they started manhandling my wife. They went ahead to destroy her car. I have video evidence. I am asking, what did her car do to them? Currently, I am not around, but I have been making calls. They took her to the police station, but I was able to get her out last night. My wife never embarrassed me in public. She did not sleep at the police station. It was a gang up against my wife.”
