President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Segun Arinze has reportedly caused a stir at the Murtala International Airport Lagos, after resisting regular routine of tendering identification card alongside ticket and boarding pass while boarding a flight to Benin a couple of weeks ago.

Nigeria’s Celebrity World said the actor cum producer had purchased his ticket the previous day and was set to board when the officer in charge at the point of boarding asked for his details as part of final checking.

The actor was said to have told the Airk airline officer simply identified as Jide, “Don’t you know me?”

A response by the officer, sources confirmed, provoked the father of two. Eyewitnesses said the officer politely told the actor that it was simply the process he had to go through and which he should be aware of.

He was said to have been caught off guard and threatened to beat up the middle-aged Arik worker. The worker was said to have stood his ground, insisting that the actor present his ID card.
“He simply did not have an ID card,” an eye witness added.

The actor, who was shouting at the top of his voice during the misunderstanding, created a scene and later asked for a ticket refund and walked to the ticket stand where he had earlier engaged in a minor argument with the Arik airline ticketing and reservation officers.

After being refused a refund of ticket for the second time, eyewitnesses said a member of the ticketing officer later spoke to the boarding officer to allow him to go even though Segun Arinze was wrong in his approach.

“I think it was a transfer of aggression and he needs to be careful next time because he does not know who is who,” the eyewitness added.
Segun Arinze is currently in court with Emeka Ike for the leadership of the AGN.
