Odulade Adekola and Mr. Latin
We won’t be surprised to see the two popular actors, Odulade Adekola and Bolaji Amusan, a.k.a Mr. Latin, come public to return gratitude to God for saving them from the robbery attack.
The duo were returning from Glo music show on Saturday night in Ijebu Ode before they were attacked by armed robbers along Ileshan Sagamu road.
Narrating the ordeal on Sunday, 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 already stationed themselves on the road,” he said.
The actor explained that Odunlade was driving ahead of his car when he sighted the road block by the bandits. Odunlade attempted to make a detour, but the bandits rained bullets on the tyres forcing the car to a halt, he explained.
Mr Latin, who drove in his Toyota Camry behind Odunlade’s Toyota Avensis, said he and his colleague, alongside some of their aides, had to abandon their vehicles and run into the bush.
He said they were in the bush for almost two hours, while the bandits ransacked their vehicles, carting away valuables including money and mobile phones.
“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.
He said some vigilante members later came to their rescue and they were taken to Ogun State University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu for medical treatment.
“We have reported the matter to the police. We thank God for sparing our lives”, Mr. Latin said.
