Afro-pop music star, 9ice narrowly escaped an armed robbery attack in Lagos days ago..
A source close to the Gongo Aso crooner said the attack happened at about midnight of Sunday 6 November at Town Planing Way in Ilupeju, Lagos.
The multiple award-winning singer was heading to a show on the Island and about to swing towards the Anthony Village bridge to connect the Gbagada Expressway when an ash-coloured SUV with four armed men inside abruptly stopped and blocked 9ice’s Mercedes Benz car.
The source said immediately the singer saw the gun-wielding hoodlums walking towards his car, he braved the odd and put the car in reverse before turning towards Coker Road in the same Ilupeju neighbourhood.
“He was brave and lucky to escape as the guys could not catch up with him after noticing their evil plans,” the source said.
In a message by 9ice sent to our correspondent through his PR reps, stated; ”I thank God for that narrow escape. I couldn’t ever imagine what I experienced on that Sunday night. Of course, their intention is to rob me of the car but only God could tell what they could do next. But I thank God for the escape.”
