A national newspaper reported over the weekend that a movie producer threatened to arrest Nollywood actress, Tonto Dikeh with police if she doesn’t show up for an abandoned movie production in Asaba, Delta State.

The news story had it that Tonto left the movie production on the excuse of travelling to Lagos last week Monday but was on another movie shoot.

She was reported to have still not returned to the abandoned movie set as at last weekend.

Speaking to Nigeriafilms  through her publicist, Tonto claimed that she never dumped the movie production in Asaba for another movie production.

She claimed that she actually travelled to Lagos on Tuesday for a TV shoot for Tee A’s ‘Time Out With Tee A’, which is a comedy TV show.

She also claimed that when news broke about her abandoning a movie set, she offered to make a refund of all the money collected from the movie producer because of the embarrassment caused her but the producer begged her not to take that step.

According to what we gathered, other movie stars the likes of Queen Nwokoye, Frank Arturs amongst others are also taking part in the movie shoot in Asaba.

You will recall that last year, a movie producer, AMACO Investment had same problem with actress, Uche Ugbodo.

The latter was reported to actors’ guild leadership and was almost faced with a two-year ban from acting.
