Famous Nigerian comedian, Seyi Law reportedly assaulted a security guard named Peter Ethan at the prestigious Eko Hotel and Suites.
According to the Vanguard, Seyi Law slapped Ethan across the face thrice as he was trying to exit the hotel after the conclusion of Kiss Daniel’s album launch concert in the early hours of Monday, May 16, 2016.
The report says that as Seyi Law was driving out of the venue in his Porsche, he was accosted by the security guard, trying to inform him of an alternative route he could take to ease the vehicular movement and avoid traffic.
Suddenly, Seyi Law jumped out of his car furiously and landed hot slaps on the security guard, Peter Ethan.
Stunned, Ethan burst into uncontrollable tears. On seeing their colleague in such an emotional state, Peter’s fellow security guards rushed to the spot to inquire what transpired.
Immediately they got to the gist of what happened, they took sides with Peter, one of them even attempted to physically harass the comedian, but for the intervention of a few peacemakers and Seyi’s quick escape instincts.
When asked about what actually happened, an emotional Peter told Potpourri, Vanguard that, “I was only trying to redirect him through an alternative route which my boss instructed us on, to avoid traffic jam as guests drive out. To my greatest surprise, Seyi Law just jumped out of his car and began to hurl abusive words at me. While trying to explain to him he just suddenly gave me three dirty slaps. This has never happened to me before, is it because I’m putting on a security uniform? I didn’t expect this kind of attitude from Seyi Law”
