This story is WILD! So this is the gist of it, because it's also quite a long story:

In 2002, Kano-based Nollywood actress, Rabi Ismaila, was convicted of murder and sentenced to death, for killing her boyfriend, Mr. Auwalu. She reportedly kill him in order to acquire his property.

How did she kill him? Drugging and Drowning. She took him out for a picnic, where she poisoned him through chocolate and pushed him into a dam.

in January 5, 2005, Rabi was sentenced to death by hanging by a High Court in Kano.

In 2011, the Supreme Court upheld the sentence of the lower courts that sentenced her to death by hanging, and she was held in Kaduna Central prison from where she was transferred to Hadejia prison.

Then she escaped. And the police didn't find her for another 6 years.

In 2017, a joint effort by the Department of State Services and the Intelligence Unit of the Nigerian Prisons Service resulted in the capture of the convicted Hausa movie actress.

5. Lola Margaret

Nigerian actress, film producer and director, Lola Margaret was reportedly arrested in USA for wired fraud.
This report came shortly after Dammy Krane was arrested and detained in similar charges.

According to reports, the Yoruba actress had suspicious amounts of money wired into her bank account. She constantly withdrew the money thereby drawing the attention of detectives. The police took her in for further interrogations, with no official report on the alleged card fraud by the Atlanta police, but the actress’ mugshot surfaced online.
