Fast-rising Yoruba actress, Temmy who has spent the past 5 years in a Dubai prison for drug trafficking has been released and is back in Nigeria. The plumpy actress who rocked many party scenes in Lagos before she was caught in the web of drug trafficking by Dubai authorities came back into the country last week.
She arrived at Murtala Muhammed International Airport Lagos into the waiting hands of the father of her baby girl. We have it on good authority that Temmy and her man will soon be walking down the aisle. As you read this, the actress has not indicated any intention to return to movie location to continue her career in acting.
About 5 years ago, news filtered in from the oil rich United Arab Emirates State of Dubai that Temmy had been jailed for 10 years for drug trafficking.
Nothing was heard about her until a year later when news broke that she has been delivered of a baby girl while in prison. Sources who know the high flying actress confirmed to us that shortly before her arrest in Dubai, she was seen around with a top baron in Dubai.
Having a baby, traditionally, is a thing of joy, but for the beautiful Nigerian actress it’s a sad tale to have her first baby in a gas chamber and worst of it all, far from her fatherland, Nigeria. A source revealed, “Nigerians in Dubai have neglected Temmy like a bad habit for fear of arrest. All her efforts to reach her close pals in Dubai to come to her aid shortly after she had the baby proved abortive as friends and business associates have all avoided her like a plague.”
Though, Temmy initially bagged a 21-year jail term, her condition as a pregnant woman then, was said to have them reduce it to 10 years. It will be recalled that when Temmy was arrested for drugs, she was not lucky enough when the custodians of UAE law and constitution found her wanting aside the drug issue.
Temmy, we learnt, had police cases of stealing and forgery inside Dubai major markets and had been warned severally never to return to country again. But as fate would have it, she was said to have used another forged name and documents to enter Dubai while she was trafficking drugs. Left with no choice of curbing her excesses, the UAE authorities gave her two options.
Firstly, to be amputated on her left arm and right leg or face 21 years imprisonment. She however fell for the latter.
