Uche Jombo, Van Vicker, others detained at police station for 12 hrs

Star actress Uche Jombo, actor Van Vicker, screenwriter Uduak Isong, Nigerian youth for change founder Michael Bobby Obodo, celeb stylist Yolanda Okereke and a few others were all arrested around 9pm on Thursday May 3rd by policemen from the Bode Thomas police station while shooting a movie scene at the Censor police station in Surulere.

They were all detained at the Bode Thomas police station for over 12 twelve hours. Their offense? The police accused them of using the Censor police station to shoot a movie scene without due process. Meanwhile the nollywood crew said they had gotten clearance from another police officer before they began shooting. The police officer who gave them permission was with them at the station but couldn't do anything to secure their release. He was later queried.

The Nollywood stars passed the night behind the counter and were released yesterday morning, Friday May 4th. Now I hear they plan to send the police a petition through their lawyers.

Best dressed goes to...? *cough*

If you have never believed anything I've written on this blog, please believe this one. Annie and 2face are officially married. Stella Dimoko first wrote it yesterday but I wanted to be extremely sure it was true before writing it. And I have confirmed it, from the couple themselves. I spoke with 2face and Annie this afternoon and 2baba excitingly confirmed to me that he's now a married man. The lovebirds didn't want to give out too much info but confirmed they indeed officially got married at a very private ceremony on Wednesday May 2nd 2012, witnessed by only a few close family and friends. I asked them if they were planning a white wedding later, and they said yes. All the details for that will be revealed when they are ready. So there you have it folks, 2face Idibia and Annie are now officially man and wife!

So so happy for them and big congrats to them!
