Okey Bakassi’s Encounter: The Temptation to Peddle Drugs

Renowned Nigerian comedian, Okey Bakassi, recently shared his experiences of being lured into the world of drug peddling, both in Nigeria and abroad.

In an interview with Channels TV, the veteran Nollywood actor revealed that fraudsters and drug dealers had approached him with enticing offers to join their illicit trade.

Bakassi highlighted that individuals in the entertainment industry, including himself, are often targeted due to their visibility and influence.

These criminals see them as potential recruits for the lucrative drug trade. Despite the potential financial gains, Bakassi firmly rejected such offers, opting for a simpler and lawful path.

Reflecting on his early days in Lagos, he acknowledged the various temptations he faced, particularly from those involved in fraudulent activities and drug dealing. He emphasized that these illicit propositions were not limited to Nigeria but extended to encounters overseas.

According to Bakassi, the approach from drug dealers typically involved meetings in hotels, where they would discuss the business and tempt potential recruits with stories of immense profits.

However, he recognized the inherent dangers associated with such illegal activities and chose a path that allowed him to sleep peacefully at night, unburdened by the fear of law enforcement.

Bakassi’s determination to maintain a clean and lawful reputation has been a guiding principle throughout his career, ensuring that he remains on the right side of the law.
