Nollywood actor Rotimi Salami has recounted his ordeal in the hands of robbers while in Lagos traffic. In an Instagram post on Tuesday 13th July 2021, the actor said he was robbed at gunpoint at Badagry-Mile 2 road on Monday 12th July 2021.
Rotimi Salami said four boys with a gun approached him while in standstill traffic. The hoodlums requested his phones. They had gotten away with one phone before they were chased.
“I am not hurt. In between trailers in a standstill traffic… 4 very young boys showed up from nowhere. Broke my car glass with a gun when I refused to whine down, threatening to shoot if I and my kid brother don’t drop our phones.
Thank God I was sluggish to drop both phones. I gave one and while I was trying to disconnect the other and give to them. People showed up and chased them. But they flee with 2 standby bikes parked on the other side of the road”.

The actor also urged the general public to ignore calls or WhatsApp chats that come from the stolen phone but speak directly with him before transacting any business.
Just last year actor Charles Inojie was robbed at gunpoint in Lagos Traffic.
Chinedu Ikedieze, fellow castmate of the actor on the Africa Magic series, “The Johnsons”, broke the news on his Instagram page.
Ikedieze assured fans and followers that Charles Inojie was unhurt; even though his phone and other valuables were stolen from him.
With the high rate of insecurity in Lagos, it is important that you look out for yourself.
