Nollywood Director Accused Of Theft And Assault

Nollywood director, Vincent D Anointed has been accused of theft and assault by a Canada based Nigerian, Steve Ugo.
Mr Ugo posted details of the incident on his Instagram page recently, saying he hired Vincent D Anointed concerning a movie he planned to produce and upon Vincent’s advice, came to Nigeria to seal the deal, but was held hostage by Vincent and three of his friends, who seized his belongings and asked for N700, 000.
He further alleged that the director persuaded him during one of their chats via Facebook, to send some money into his account so he could book the actors.
‘Am still reposting because I and my friend, Chukwudi went through hell at Delta Park Hotel Asaba, Nigeria, the day we went to meet @Vincentdanointed. Heaven even Demons itself must bear me witness that my purpose of going there was to discuss with this dude how I can produce my first movie which was my main reason of going to motherland africa.
Am so grateful to God I never paid in 1200$ he told me to pay in so that he will book the actors and actress I need. He advised me to increase the money to 2200$ so that I will be able to get more faces in my movie, I told him I will come down shortly so we can write the synopsis first, which we accepted
They were four of them that locked me and my friend up at Delta Park Hotel, Asaba Nigeria, Vincent D Criminal, Emmanuel Onuma, Emmanuel Onyemulu and Chinedu Aniekwe. Emma Onuma later calmed down when the beating was going on and started pleading for our release. Vincent D Boss literally refused, dude eye was red that day.
Vincent the director of Red Mafias and Obioma the Slave Girl stole my iPhone 5 and belongings (sic)‘ he wrote. Meanwhile, the film maker has denied all allegations. While speaking with Gbenga Bada of Movie Moments he denied even knowing Ugo; ‘I’ve been seeing those posts and I keep wondering how someone I don’t know would be doing such.
I take it as nothing if you say you were abducted and robbed, why didn’t you report to the police. At least I’m not someone you cannot have access to….I don’t know the person and I guess whoever he is, he’s only looking for cheap publicity‘ he said.
Vincent D Anointed is a member of the Directors’ Guild of Nigeria
