Speaking exclusively to Premium Times, Mr. Latin said;
“we left Ijebu-Ode after the show and heading to Abeokuta, when at about 7.30 p.m. we ran into the armed robbers already stationed themselves on the road,” he said.
According to him, Odunlade who tried making a detour after spotting the road block the armed robbers laid was shot at by the bandits who targeted his car’s tyres, bringing the Toyota Avensis he was driving to a halt.
Mr. Latin further disclosed that they had to abandon their cars and run into the bush where they stayed for two hours, leaving the robbers who carted away valuables including money and mobile phones from their cars.
“We ran as the robbers pursued us with guns. We were in the bush for about two hours, before we later regained freedom after the robbers left the scene,” Mr Latin stated.
However some vigilante members later came to their rescue, and they were taken to Ogun State University Teaching Hospital, Sagamu for medical treatment.
Mr. Latin who thanked God for sparing their lives, said the matter has been reported to the Police.
