We learnt that they were arrested while filming in Surulere, Lagos with some of their crew members. They were detained at Bode Thomas police station, Surulere, Lagos.
We just learnt that they have been briefed with why they were being held in police detention.
According to the reason, they are being held because police feel filmmakers feed people with wrong side of the Nigerian police in their movies.
Two weeks ago, Van Vicker was arrested in Lagos for arms possession which he claimed was for a movie props.
Uche Jombo was reported to have fought for his release by men of the State Security Services (SSS) in Lagos, where he was held overnight.
