Sometime last year, Nollywood star, Tonto Dike made clear about her scuffle with some Dubai security authorities.
Sometime in November 2019 there were rumors that the actress has been arrested and removed from Dubai following her scuffle with security authorities.
However, the mother of one on Instagram on Sunday revealed that she had a faceoff with Dubai authorities not because of drugs but because a guard called her a ‘prostitute’ in Arabic language.
She said that if she was caught with drugs according to some media reports, she should be in jail by now.
”Far from it. That incident in Dubai was not drugs because if it was I would be in jail. It had nothing to do with drugs or alcohol even.
“On that day, I was insulted by one of the guards. He said something very derogatory to me in Arabic, I think Lebanon. It’s called Sharamuta which means prostitute, it means a call girl and I was not so dressed.
“But it was a show, so I had like a very amazing bra inside and this blazer on top. To them, it is Haram when you are not dressed properly. So that is where all of the altercation started. That was the only problem, any other information is just false,” Tonto said.
He said he didn’t provide information about the incident earlier because she has a home in the country and wouldn’t want her stay there to be jeopardised.
“I really don’t want to go into so much detail about Dubai because I have a home there now and I want to be able to enter freely after all of this and that is why I never really talked about it,” the actress added.
