Turns out that it is not just Music Executive, Soberekon that was nearly robbed by Lagos traffic robbers, Nollywood Actor, Chidi Mokeme also faced a similar ordeal in the hands of the hoodlums.
For Mokeme, the incident happened around the Victoria Garden City area of Lagos while he was hurriedly heading to the airport to catch a flight.
He uploaded a video on Instagram of him in the red Hummer SUV after the attack and another video of the extent of the damage when he got to the Murtala Mohammed International Airport, Lagos.
“BEWARE! So here 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 there before me to pick up the car (he had gone to look for a 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.”
He added, “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 reaction. 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 the Flight Manager, Mr Otori.”(sic)
