A Nigerian man, named only as Elvis Eze, physically assaulted Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson because she did not give him a hug, News One reports.
Elvis Eze, apparently bent on unleashing violence on the actress, chased her to her car, fiercely pushed her head as though he was inviting her to a wrestling match and was heard yelling at her.
The timely intervention of eyewitnesses was what rescued the frightened actress from the physical attacks she was receiving from the incensed man who was poised to humiliate his hapless female prey.
The strange incident happened in the presence of several eyewitnesses Saturday night during the birthday party of actress Ingrid Alabi in Accra.
The case was reported to the East Legon Police but Elvis, also known as Elvis Casino, was still evading arrest as at press time Sunday.
Reports say Elvis was one of the several persons invited to Ingrid’s party, where he met Yvonne Nelson as well as other celebrities including Eddie Nartey, Van Vicker, Nikki Samonas, Jasmine Baroudi, Khareema Aguiar, KOD and Ghana Movie Awards boss Fred Nuamah.
Elvis was said to have joined Yvonne to take photos with Ingrid and some others but after the photos, he requested a hug from Yvonne but she declined.
This infuriated him and he started abusing her verbally before chasing her up to her car when she was leaving the party grounds.
Elvis, while going after the actress, was overheard yelling on top of his voice at that moment, “Who are you? Who the f*ck do you think you are? Who do you think you are?”
Yvonne Nelson reported the incident to the East Legon Police and a team was sent to contact Ingrid Alabi to assist in locating Elvis. On reaching the house Elvis was supposed to be staying, occupants said he was not home.
An elderly man, who identified himself as owner of the house, however, took the contacts of the police team and promised to produce Elvis Sunday noon after church.
