Gist getting to Nigeriafilms has it that one Jack David otherwise known as Prada, who is now at large, has been accused of stealing a Nissan Pathfinder car belonging to one up and coming artiste, Charles Graville. Prada, as we reliably gathered, is the nephew of Nollywood actor, Gentle Jack. He is aged 19 years.
As the story goes, Prada reportedly approached Charles as the PR manager of Scintilla. He allegedly offered to work for the singer. After much pressure, he was told given an opportunity to work as Charles’ PA. This happened, according to what Charles told Nigeriafilms, on Friday, August 3 at the premiere of Last Flight to Abuja held in Lekki, Lagos.
Soon after the premiere and after party, Charles said he drove home with his
manager, a colleague, a radio presenter and Jack. The next day (Saturday), Charles said he dropped Prada and others off at a bus stop and then gave him (Prada) 5,000 Naira to use as transport fare.
On Monday night, August 6, Charles said Prada came to his house on the pretence of leaving his mum’s umbrella in his (Charles) car. Charles said he told him he would give the umbrella to his gateman so that Prada would get it the next day since he would be travelling the next day.
Though, Prada agreed, as we gathered, but he reportedly came back that night to plead with Charles to spend the night at his place since it was already late. This, as Charles told us, he agreed to and left him downstairs playing his PS 3 game.
The next day, after waking up at 9am, which was unsual of him as he told us, he found out that Prada was no where to be found. His PS 3, laptop, blackberry phones and his Nissan Pathfinder registered first with MUS 750 AJ, but now using peace ambassador number plate; PEACE 701 were all missing.
Charles said he inquired from his gateman how Prada left with his belongings, but was told that Prada said he was sent on an errand by Charles.
The matter has been reported at the police station at Ojodu, Lagos. A police source at the station reliably told Nigeriafilms that efforts are still on in tracking Prada.
A family source told Nigeriafilms that Prada is not new in this kind of messy character. We reliably gathered that he was once charged to court for allegedly stealing mobile phone.
A source also informed us that his parents have last stayed together about seven years ago. Prada’s dad, as a source revealed to us, work at the sports ministry. He is the elder brother of Nollywood actor, Gentle Jack.
