Two popular Nollywood actors, Bolaji Amusan, popularly called Mr Latin, and Odunlade Adekola were attacked by armed robbers on Saturday night.
According to Premium Times, the two were returning home from the show on Saturday, July 15, at night when they ran into robbers who barricaded the road.
Mr Latin narrated the ordeal to PREMIUM TIMES on Sunday.
“We left Ijebu-Ode after the show and heading to Abeokuta, when at about 7.30 p.m. we ran into the armed robbers already stationed themselves on the road,” he said.
It was gathered that the two actors were driving in separate cars with their aides.
Adekola whose car was in lead made an attempt to turn around his car after sighting the robbers but the thieves rained down bullets on the cars forcing them to stop.
According to Mr Latin, he and his colleague with their aides fled their cars into the bush to escape from the armed robbers.
“We took to our heels as the robbers pursued us with guns. We were in the bush for about two hours, before we later regained freedom after the robbers left the scene,” Mr Latin stated.
