Nollywood actor Chidi Mokeme has narrated how he was attacked by traffic robbers in Lagos.
The incident, which he disclosed, happened in the Victoria Garden City (VGC) area of Lagos while he was on his way to the airport.
Chidi Mokeme took to his Instagram page to relived how some men in a ‘Honda’ vehicle attempted to box him up in an attempt to Rob him.
“BEWARE! So here I was, stuck in Lagos traffic, in front of VGC to be precise, wondering if, and when I was going to make it in time for my international flight, praying my driver makes it there before me to pick up the car (he had gone to look for a small basket of agbalumo/udala that I wanted to surprise my sis @cyn05cyn with. one part of my brain was manoeuvering the truck, and still baffled at how Lagosians always manage to turn a two-lane road into twelve lanes and still survive!” Chidi Mokeme wrote.
“For my koro koro eye like this, @googlemaps was recalculating my ETA from a 2:05hrs journey to 3:07hrs and rising and I hadn’t driven up to 100 meters.
“Suddenly, all of a sudden, out of nowhere, I noticed a white Honda Accord try to box me in, someone jumped in front of my truck and started signalling “Stop there, I say stop there…” Me: “Stop there fùn kíní? Stop there bì ti bawo?” he continued.
“In that split second, I had assessed the situation – plain clothes, no uniform, hand reaching inside pants, accomplice running over from the other side of the road, getaway car idling, I took the only option, almost ran him over and climbed the culvert, dashing into the service lane to oncoming vehicles.
“I caught a quick glimpse of the guy in the rearview reaching for something, I couldn’t tell what it was but swerved, the next thing I heard was a loud explosion, glass shattering and shrapnel all over me in all directions. My first reaction was “What the F*^k? Now I’m going to kill whoever this motherf*^cker is”
The 50-year-old actor stated that though he thought of stopping to retaliate, but the man in him knew it was a trap.
“DON’T STOP”. But I wanted blood so badly I could taste it in my guts. Guess what I did? I did the only thing that made #ChidiSense to me “Focus on catching my flight, (which by the way, I had missed the day before… that’s another story), so I kept it moving.”
