Peter Ethan, a security guard at the prestigious Eko Hotel and suites, was ferociously slapped across the face by popular award-winning rib cracker, Seyi Law, three times, on his way out of Eko hotel after the much talked-about Kiss Daniel’s Album Concert in the early hours of Monday, May 16 2016.
As guests and participants thronged out of the venue after a satisfying night, also driving out in his Porsche car, Seyi Law was approached by Peter Ethan who wanted to inform him of an alternative route he could take to ease vehicular movement and avoid traffic. Most bizarrely, however, Seyi Law jumped out of his car like a lightning bolt and dealt the security guard, Peter Ethan, three resounding slaps that got him staggering for balance.
Lost for words as to why Seyi Law so brazenly bullied him, the security guard broke into tears.
On seeing their colleague in such an emotional state, Peter’s fellow security guards hurried to the spot to inquire what happened. Immediately they got the gist of what happened, they took sides with their own and one of them even attempted to physically return Seyi Law’s treatment in kind to him, but for the intervention of peacemakers and Seyi’s quick escape instincts. He would have been lynched by the angry mob that began to build.
While speaking to Potpourri at the scene on what actually transpired, an emotionally unstable Peter tearfully recounted his ordeal: “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”.
