Popular actor and National President of the Actorsâ€™ Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Segun Arinze, hasÂ allayed the fear that he is stranded in the United Kingdom.
Reacting to a Yahoo message that was sent to some selected wealthy Nigerians via his e-mailÂ address, [email protected], requesting for financial assistance to return to Nigeria,Â Arinze said the message is the handiwork of internet hackers.
According to him, â€œsometime last year, I wanted to check my e-mail but was surprised that myÂ password was not going through. It was later that I discovered that some internet hackers hadÂ changed it, making the e-mail inaccessible to me. I have since changed the e-mail address. ButÂ I was surprised when people started to call yesterday that they saw my message appealing forÂ fund to return to Nigeria.
â€œHowever, I want to use this medium to say that I am in Nigeria and not stranded in UK, soÂ people should ignore the message because those behind it are fraudsters.â€
