Femi Adebayo is feeling lucky after escaping heavily armed gunmen carrying AK47 rifles.
He confirmed that the suspected assassins attacked his driver who was riding in his vehicle that also got damaged.
The incident occurred in Lagos according to the actor who wrote on Instagram today.
He acknowledges that it is part of the risk of getting involved in politics.
“I thank God for his protection over me and mine. I know my job comes with its risk. Working as an Actor and Politician requires my regular movement.
“Today, Just at the U turn coming from CMD Magodo around 7UP heading towards Ojota, my vehicle was accosted by men in a Toyota Corolla.
“They crossed my vehicle at the U Turn. 2 men alighted from the vehicle bearing AK47s. They tried to force the doors open. They kept hitting my car with the butt of their gun. In the process, they broke the door handle and left dents on different parts of my vehicle.
“All these happened in full view of other vehicles and other individuals passing by. In the short time this happened, no one came to help.
“The guys were obviously not Policemen, they didn’t wear any Insigna of the force. They wore plain clothes and had extra guts to perform this act during the day at about 12 noon.
“Their assumption will have been that I was in the vehicle but my driver was the only one enroute to my location.
“With swiftness, he was able to maneuver and speed off. I thank God for keeping him. We are all still shocked at this but grateful to God that no life was lost in the process.”
