Trouble allegedly started when a member of their crew engaged in a fight and injured someone, who then reported the matter to some soldiers around.

However, Jigan and Jaywon were said to be trying to defend the attacker, with Jigan quoted as saying “don’t you know who I am?,” a statement that angered the soldiers, who then brought out their horsewhip and started flogging him.

Everything later degenerated into a state of chaos, with people fleeing and the birthday party ending abruptly.

  1. Who are you when it comes to soldiers? Soldiers don’t identify whether you are a celebrity or not, you are simply a bloody civilian where they are. I think you should know that better, instead of earning yourself such suffering. Hope you will learn from this. Hard luck.

  16. You where asking soldiers that kind of question, you think they were ordinary police men. You have luck they didn’t shoot your leg

  17. Soldier do not know celebrities, if you pass your boundary they will beat the hell out of someone, but they should have even respect him thou cause they don’t know his age

  18. pls, if you found yourself in this point, don’t say this kind of statement because most of these army doesn’t watch film.

  19. Soldiers are wicked set of people . The guy is an handicap . They should have thought about his condition and took pity of him

  20. Nothing concern the soldier with who you are, he should have learn to respect himself,why would a birthday party turn to 2nd World War..lol

  21. So pity, but next time u can not compromise your celebrity status with soja, they don’t care whom u are, u only try to respect your humble self ni o

  22. I pity Jigan sha.This incident reminded me of the saying that “if a soldier slaps u, u ‘ll know dat police is your friend.

  23. This our Soildier they don’t want to care who you are sorry for the beating next time don’t ask a Soildier man that “do you know who am i”

  24. Jigan wouldn’t have prayed for such incident to happen after all soldiers don’t really know who is who so far you are a civilian there is fire on the mountain. am so sorry Jigan

  25. How can a bloody civilian called him self a celebrity ask a soldier such qustion? He thinks his’s talking to a police man is good for him that way so that he will learn not to boost on soldiers

  26. No matter who you are you don’t have the the right to say that to a military man else you will learn your lesson that day

  27. Celebrity and their problem. Who is he? Just flesh and blood. Am happy they flogged hi, at least it will remind him that he is still a human being lol

  28. In the first place jigan asking such a question directly to the national security team is very bad because those security team are not meant to receive order from any one save their commander.

  29. Who are you when it comes to soldiers? Soldiers don’t identify whether you are a celebrity or not, you are simply a bloody civilian where they are. I think you should know that better, instead of earning yourself such suffering. Hope you will learn from this. Hard luck.

  30. Being a celebrity doesn’t mean you should misbehave when you are outside. The situation is quiet a pity!

  31. I think you should know that better, instead of earning yourself such suffering. Hope you will learn from this. Hard luck.

  32. I’m sure they were rude to the soldiers, they should know that soldiers are always violent, thank God he came out alive

  33. He must have learnt his lesson today…mind how you talk outside…common sense or home training…no need to brag.

  34. Soldiers only hear go, they don’t hear come, he should have calm down and hear them out, they don’t mind if you are a celebrity ,well all the best

  35. Who do you think you are, because you are an actor doesn’t make you extraordinary. You telling soldiers do you know Who is am?
    You called for the beating, next time don’t boast about who you are.

  36. After all the rigorous training dey go thru u think u can scare them with “do u know who I am”….u got wat u deserved

  37. You see why it’s not good to brag? At any little opportunity people will ask DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM? We are nothing on earth, we are just pencils in the hands of our creator(Almighty God). What they should have done even if their friend is right is make peace and not supporting their friend, they forgot that soldiers don’t take shit from anybody, maybe they thought they were dealing with the Nigeria police hahahaha

  38. Even governors do go cell if they wrong not to talk of u an ordinary actor. Is bad, u should have answer them like that rather u should have just narrate everything that happened to them.

  39. Soldiers care less about celebrities especially the ones that are not famous like jigan. Of course they wouldn’t have done that to the likes of top celebrities and he was wrong by saying that.

  40. You have just suffered yourself for nothing you are simply a bloody civilian where they are. I think you should know that better, instead of earning yourself such sufferin

  41. No soldiers don’t know who you are and they won’t even care to know so calm down and let them do their job

  42. We should learn to regard people because even teniest human has his or her own ego. We should desist from asking people do you know who I am because this kind of question triggers anger.

  43. Who and what the hell are you, even soldiers are treating the Fuck up if people more better than you. That are not like the police men that do cover up rude and nonsense behaviors. Don’t do that again oh. WHO ARE YOU

  44. Sorry for the beating. And as for the question you asked about who you are, I’m sure they know now who you are.

  45. U made a big mistake….soldiers dont take nonsense…mind how u act and your speech next time you are around them

  46. This statement” do u know who I am” has killed so many peoole.do u know who the other person you r asking is?and all these celebrities thinking they r above the law.you got what you deserve?

  47. I don’t know y birthday party these days don’t go well. It must always end up with a fight. God help us all

  48. Not everyone will acknowledge the celebrity status. He shouldn’t have asked soldiers that kind of question

  49. Omo see bragging. And it led you to the mist wonderful birthday event. You’ll just be showing off yourself.
