Veteran Nollywood actor, Segun Arinze has revealed why he assaulted his security guard as could be seen in a video that has since gone viral.
In a video shared by a Twitter user identified as @CloakedAdonis, Segun Arinze was seen angrily chasing the young man believed to be his gateman and even attempted to hit him with his car.
Adonis, who shared the video, alleged that Segun Arinze assaulted his domestic staff for breaking the burglary of his house and also for using his car without his permission.
However, speaking to Punch, the veteran actor justified his action saying he has been very patient and very reasonable with his security guard but he kept misbehaving, which is why he lost his temper.
“Isaiah has been working with me for over a year, I take him as a younger brother and I never treated him like a staff; but his excesses are too much,” Segun Arinze said.
“He leaves his duty post at will without informing anyone in the house.
“He left the gate open unguarded countless times. I have spoken, counselled, gotten angry many times, to no avail.
“On Sunday, he left the house without informing me; he returned on Monday afternoon, saying he went for a party and forgot my gate key at his friend’s house.
“At that point, I couldn’t bottle up my anger any longer, so, I slapped him.”
Continuing, Arinze said, “It is sad that the man who filmed the incident couldn’t spare some time to ask what led to the public outrage.
“Everybody in the neighbourhood knows me as a peace-loving resident.”
