Mrs. Etiko, the mother of Nollywood’s actress Destiny Etiko, teamed up with Nigerian pranksters, Untouchable and Flower boy, to orchestrate a murder prank on Nollywood Veteran, Chiwetalu Agu.
In the prank video, Destiny Etiko’s mother was seen alongside a young girl who played the role of her granddaughter.
She stopped Chiwetalu Agu’s car on the road, earnestly asked the veteran for a selfie, mirroring a star-struck fan’s behavior.
Chiwetalu, who was en route to a film shoot, willingly agreed to her plea, stepped out of the car, and snapped a selfie with her.
Just as the actor was preparing to take a solo selfie with the little girl, he inadvertently touched her, and to Chiwetalu’s utmost astonishment, the little girl unexpectedly collapsed.
Destiny Etiko’s mother immediately welled up with tears, gripped his dress tightly as she accused the actor of using ‘juju’ on her granddaughter.
Some make-believe passersbys came out from the hiding spots, escalated her allegations against the actor, insinuated that the actor embodied his sinister juju roles from movies, on the little girl.
Amid the flurry of accusations, Chiwetalu Agu managed to maintain his composure initially, providing an explanation for the entire situation.
However, the seasoned actor eventually succumbed to anger, slapped one of the passersbys when they issued a threat to involve the police.
In an effort to avoid the situation from escalating further, Untouchable and Flower boy emerged from where they had been hiding and informed the actor it was all a prank.
Chiwetalu Agu, filled with disbelief, couldn’t grasp that the entire incident was staged. He then went on to utter a renowned Igbo phrase that he frequently uses in his film roles.
