Bolaji Amusan, aka Mr. Latin, popular Yoruba movie comic actor has reacted to the news that made the rounds of his being attacked and physically manhandled by armed robbers.
The news of the robbery attack trended on Friday that Mr Latin was attacked by suspected armed robbers at Guru-Maharaj axis along Lagos-Ibadan expressway on his way to participate in a radio programme in Ibadan, Oyo State.
The report also added that he was dispossessed of some cash, mobile phones and other belongings.
The ace comic actor has however refuted the report, stating that although he was one of the motorists who ran into a road block the bandits mounted on the expressway, he was not robbed.
He told Premium Times: “I was actually going to a film location and when I got a tip off of the presence of the bandits, I escaped into the bush with other travellers.
“I was not robbed. I ran into the armed robbers but escaped into the bush with many people.
“I am hale and hearty and nothing was removed from my car. My phone and everything are with me on location at Ibadan.”
