Coming back from work, I was robbed at gunpoint. I was riding in my car with my colleagues, Georgina Ibeh and Shire twin, and we were robbed around Ubulu Okiti at gunpoint.
They stole everything, took everything, phones; ransacked the vehicle. Took footwear, production shoes, my bags with my passport in it and personal belongings. My PVC, my ID card and lots of things”, he said amidst tears.

Tears dropped the moment I got home by 1am and saw my family.
Thank God for saving our lives. May we not meet our end in our quest for our daily bread… Amen”.
