Nollywood actress, Lizzy Anjorin, has reacted to accusations of theft and the use of fake bank alerts at a market in Lagos.
In a video sighted by ThisNigeria, Anjorin could be seen sitting in a store trying to defend herself and stop people from recording her.
According to unconfirmed reports she allegedly made a fake bank alert at a store where she went to buy gold.
Reacting, Anjorin denied the allegations of stealing gold, stating that the incident was about a purported failed transfer of N91,000 that she paid to an accessory seller on Tom Jones in the Idumota area of Lagos.
Anjorin, in a video, expressed her shock and dismay at being implicated in such a scandal.
She stated, “I am shocked to hear about the accusations leveled against me. I categorically deny any involvement in theft or the use of fake bank alerts.
She alleged that she was set up similarly to filmmaker Olajide Kareem, alias Seun Egbegbe.
Anjorin also accused a famous actress (name withheld) of being behind the mishap. She questioned how the actress knew the story so quickly if she was not involved.
Speaking in pidgin, she said: “Shepeteri you are not smart, this afternoon you updated, you con comment, you con put lonely at the top, me I dey watch you as you self dey watch me.
