Nollywood actor, Junior Pope Odonwodo has narrated his experience with armed robbers in Ubulu Okiti, Delta State.
The actor took to his Instagram page where he shared the horrifying experience that happened while returning home from a film set on Sunday.
“I was robbed at gunpoint on my way home from work last night,” he said in the video shared Monday.
“I was in my car with my colleagues, Georgina Ibeh and Shire twins, and we were robbed at gunpoint near Ubulu Okiti.
“They stole everything, they took everything, the phones; searched the vehicle. I carried shoes, production shoes, my bags with passport and personal belongings in one of them. My Permanent Voter’s Card, my ID and a lot of things”.
Odonwodo said he saw the roadblock put up by the robbers from a distance. However, when he tried to turn his car around, he ended up hitting a colleague, Emma Umeh, who was following him.
Then the armed robbers came out of the bushes on the side of the road, asked him to lie down and searched the vehicle.
“When they asked us to go further, we drove. When we got to the customs control, we reported it,” he continued. “Actually, the Customs told us that a first group came with stabbings, to report that they were injured. It’s common in the same place.”
The actress added that Georgina Ibeh, who was left at the scene of the incident, was almost raped by the robbers. According to her, she was released only after she told the men that she was menstruating.
The actor has asked the appropriate authorities to take action on the particular road as it has become a regular problem.
“It’s not that the police don’t know, I’m very sure they do. I am appealing to the Commissioner of Police in Delta state. I am calling on the governor of Delta state, Ifeanyi Okowa, to please do something,” he said.
He also advised people to get Permanent Voter Card and vote next February.
