Don’t drag my family into social media, I will attack you physically – Okey Bakassi tells colleagues

Nigerian stand-up comedian, Okechukwu Anthony Onyegbule, popularly known as Okey Bakassi has warned his colleagues against any attack on his family on the social media, otherwise he would engage them in a physical fight.
The actor, who is known to keep his family out of the spotlight, has three kids and wife living in Canada while he shuffles between Canada and Nigeria frequently.

Speaking with Hip Tv, Bakassi declared war on anyone who attacks his wife and children on the social media, saying he prefers to be attacked personally instead of taking the battle to his family.

He said, “We live in an organized society, just that sometimes, people are lazy to follow due process.

“For example, where I am now, if you come after me, there are legal processes to follow.

“Don’t touch my family (wife and children). If you face Okey as a person, no problem with that, I can handle that because it is about me.

“But when you begin to touch my wife on social media; one, I would not engage you because one thing I look at is the caliber of the person that said such.


“If you are not above me, even if you are my mate, I will not answer you. But if you are above, that means I have a bigger surface to punch. For me, those are the two rules of engagement.

“If you decide to touch family and you are smaller, if you engage a smaller person on social media, which means you are playing into the arena where he wants you.

“I am not going to go into that, I am going to wait for you face-to-face.

“I wouldn’t know the dimension he would take when we finally meet but I would rather sort it out one on one with you.

“Since you’ve chosen your platform (social media), I will choose a more ‘civilized’ platform.”

He, however, noted on a second thought that he would not engage anyone who attacks his family on the social media because he wouldn’t want to sink to such depth.
