Nollywood actress, Jennifer Eliogu, has narrated how some daredevil bandits robbed her at gunpoint last Sunday in Surulere, Lagos.
Eliogu, who took to her Facebook page to narrate her ordeal, stated that the men of the underworld, blocked her car on the notorious Ojuelegba bridge, seized and took her to the nearest ATM point, withdrew the day’s limit on her bank accounts and later dispossessed her of her valuables.
Her words: “I write with a heart filled with gratitude to God for His mercies are unending. I had a terrible experience with the men of the underworld on Sunday night. They blocked my vehicle on Ojuelegba bridge (with) a Honda Accord in front (and) a small ash coloured car behind. (They are) four armed men. Three of them got into my car, letting their previous victim go while they drove off with me in the passenger seat and the other small car trailing behind.
“My girlfriend who was driving in front of me, noticed there was a problem and tried to confront them (but) she (was) scared of their guns. They drove to an ATM machine, asked for my pin and withdrew as much as limit permitted on both my accounts. They took my jewellery, the little cash I had in my purse and then used my car to block another victim, leaving me on the bridge to find my way.
“The last two days have been very traumatic for me as I’m still in shock. If not for God, I refuse to imagine what could have happened. Vicky had made reports at different police stations. Luckily, I blocked off my line but it seems that somehow, they might try to get in touch with persons on my phone list, WhatsApp and Imo. Please if you are on my contact list on either and you receive messages supposedly from me, please call me for confirmation.”
The Ojuelegba bridge has also become a black spot for the bandits who have consistently robbed unsuspecting motorists.
Eliogu would joined the list of celebrities that have recently been robbed on that Lagos spot.
Recently, a female journalist with The Punch was also robbed at the same point
