Actor, Chidi Mokeme was attacked by traffic robbers along Victoria garden City, VGC, on Lekki-Epe Expressway, Lekki, Lagos..
The actor was on his way to the airport to catch an international flight when the assailants attacked him damaging his vehicle.
While in traffic, calculating if he would make it to the airport in time, he said a white Honda Accord tried to box him in while a man jumped in front of his car, ordering him to stop.
After assessing the situation and suspecting the men were up to no good, Chidi said he decided not to stop and he continued moving almost running the man in front of his car over.
He then climbed the culvert and drove into the service lane in an attempt to escape the men.
The men fired several shots at his car, breaking his car windows as he fled from them.
He wrote, “So . 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 t. before me to pick up the car (he had gone to look for small basket of agbalumo/udala that I wanted to surprise my sis @cyn05cyn with), one part of my brain was manoeuvring the truck, and still baffled at how Lagosians always manage to turn a two-lane road into twelve lanes and still survive!
“For my korokoro 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 now., I noticed a white Honda Accord try to box me in, someone jumped in front of my truck and started signalling “Stop t., I say stop t.…” Me: “Stop t. fùn kíní? Stop t. bì ti bawo?”
“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, next thing I heard was a loud explosion, glass shattering and shrapnels all over me in all directions.
“My first . was “What the F*^k? Now I’m going to kill whoever this motherf*^cker is”! But the me in me that makes me the me that I am thought otherwise and said “Don’t Stop! ‘Stopping’ is the expected and predictable .. Keep it moving and take Control of the situation. 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. Peeps are of the opinion they were targeting my @louisvuitton bags sitting in the back. Some think it was an abduction attempt. Whatever, God pass them. Thanks to Flight Manager, Mr. Otori. Watch video to see the damage.”
