Comedian Seyi Law manhandled a security guard named Peter Ethan at the prestigious Eko Hotel and Suites.
According to Vanguard, SeyiLaw ferociously slapped Ethan across the face three times as he was trying to maneuver his way out of the hotel after the conclusion of Kiss Daniel’s album concert in the early hours of Monday, May 16, 2016.
As guests and participants trooped out of the venue also driving out in his Porsche car, Seyi 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, with the speed of light, the comedian angrily flew out of his car and dazed the security guard, Peter Ethan, with three hot resounding slaps that got him probably seeing stars and staggering for balance.
Lost for words as to why the comedian bullied him in such a rascally manner, 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, he would have been lynched by an angry mob that began to build.
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”
