Several blogs claimed that the actress called Ifeanyi’s nanny on the phone to distract her from noticing the boy had left the room for the swimming pool.
Reacting to the claims, police spokesperson Benjamin Hundeyin, told BBC Pidgin that Eniola was not arrested.
“THE STORY IS FALSE, NOTHING LIKE THAT HAPPENED,” he said.
