Jim Iyke, popular Nigerian actor, has been accused of slapping a Dana Air staff at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, on Monday.
According to the reports, the actor arrived late for his 12:15pm Abuja flight and the airline’s security personnel tried to help him to meet up with the flight by searching him.
Sources gathered that the Nigerian actor refused to be searched as he pushed the man away.
However, the man insisted that he must be searched before boarding and his insistence was said to have maddened Iyke, who slapped him for ‘wasting his time.’
“A Dana air staff, Suleiman, was doing a secondary check on him, before he could board, but the actor got aggressive.”
According to sources in the local wing of the airport, the incident let to Iyke being arrested by the Police.
Kingsley Ezenwa, Dana Air’s Media and Communications Manager, who confirmed the incident, said Iyke was released after he apologised to the airline employee.
