Nollywood actress Kate Henshaw has expressed her sadness and grief over the story of Temidayo Awe, who was recently convicted for her involvement in the murder of Saul Murray over a fake Rolex watch.
In a tweet on her official Twitter handle, Henshaw urged parents to teach their children the values of temperance, discipline, contentment, and the importance of keeping good company.
She expressed her dismay that a young person like Awe, who was only 21 years old, could be involved in such a heinous crime.
Henshaw questioned the motive behind killing someone for a watch, even if it was real.
She also warned about the dangers of portraying a certain lifestyle on social media, as it can attract the wrong crowd and lead to tragic consequences.
The actress extended her sympathies to the family of Saul Murray, who lost their loved one in such a senseless act of violence.
She concluded by reminding everyone to be careful in the increasingly crazy world we live in today.
“Teach your children temperance & discipline. Teach them contentment. Teach them good values.Guard the company they keep.
“The story of Temidayo Awe is one of extreme sadness but also grief for her victim's family. 7 years in jail for a rolex watch that turned out to be fake.
“Even if it was real, why kill someone for it? How long will the money last you & your accomplices? At 21??
"Be careful of the lifestyle you portray on social media...
“It's a crazy world out there... My thoughts and prayers are with the victim's family,” she tweeted.

Four individuals, including two Nigerians, Temidayo Awe and Ikem Affia, were arrested for the murder of Saul Murray in the UK.
The motive behind the killing was reportedly to steal his Rolex wristwatches after Murray flaunted them on social media.
Awe, a 21-year-old student of Coventry University, Affia, Surpreet Dhillion, and Cleon Brown were all arrested and sentenced after trial.
The murder, dubbed the ‘Honeytrap killing,’ involved the use of a date rape drug to knock Murray out, after which the gang stole his watches and left him to die.
Affia was found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison with a minimum term of 25 years, while the others were convicted of manslaughter and received prison terms of 10, 11, and seven years.
