Controversial actress, Tonto Dikeh has condemned the violent treatment of a fake beggar caught in Abakiliki, Ebonyi state.

Recall the beggar, who pretended to be an accident victim, but was exposed after a Good Samaritan offered to take him to the hospital to treat his wounds but he declined. And later on, investigations revealed that his bandaged limbs had no injuries and nothing was wrong with him.

Following the discovery, the fake beggar was beaten brutally as a video was made and shared online.

Reacting, Tonto Dikeh,  took to @LindaIkejiBlogOfficial on Instagram to condemn the beating and blast Nigerians, calling them “animals”. She went on to blame the government for the situation of the country that pushed the man to resort to deception in order to make money.
