Controversial Nigerian actress, Tonto Dikeh via her Instagram platform has given a detailed narration behind the reason for her arrest in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE) in 2019.
The Amstel Next Movie Star winner revealed that she was arrested by police operatives for illegal filming in the Asian country and not illegal possession of marijuana also known as weed.
Tonto Dikeh’s revelation is coming amidst her recently rekindled feud with her former bestfriend, the transvestite, Bobrisky real name Idris Okuneye.
The cross dresser claimed that the actress was arrested in Dubai for smoking weed.
However, Tonto took to her Instagram story, reiterating that she was not arrested for smoking weed in Dubai.
Taking a swipe at Bobrisky, Tonto wrote;
“Education is very important in life; if Bobrisky had known that weed smoking in Dubai is liable to 4/6 years in jail, if you like be the President’s daughter.
“As a matter of fact, the ruler of Dubai has his own daughter in jail for a lesser crime going years now!
“My altercation with the authorities in Dubai was recorded and posted on every blog in the country, lucky enough Dubai has public records accessible to the public on my case, which was illegal filming and abusive words to a security officer. Bobrisky get a life.”
