Top Nigerian actors, Odunlade Adekola and Bolaji Amusan also known as Mr Latin, have been attacked by armed robbers on their way home from Ijebu-Ode.

It was gathered that the actors had gone to Ijebu-Ode for a Glo music show.

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.

It was further gathered that the two actors were driving in separate cars with their aides.

Adekola whose vehicle 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. He explained that they hid in the bush for about two hours while the armed robbers ransacked their vehicles for valuables.

Mr Latin said: “We left Ijebu-Ode after the show and heading to Abeokuta, when at about 7.30 p.m. we ran into the armed robbers who already stationed themselves on the road.”

“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.”

He further said some vigilante members came to their rescue and took them to Ogun State University Teaching Hospital for medical treatment.
