Barely 24 hours after news of the botched kidnapping attempt of former Vice Chancellor of University of Ibadan, Prpf. Femi Bamiro flitted into town, a renowned Nollywood actor; Bolaji Amusan escaped death by the whiskers on Thursday in Ibadan when he was attacked by armed robbers. SJ exclusively reports that Amusan popularly known as Baba Latin was on his way to Ibadan from Abeokuta when his car ran into a road block mounted by the robbers.
A reliable source told SJ that Baba Latin was attacked at a location close to the popular Guru Maraji camp near the Ibadan-end of the Lagos-Ibadan toll gate. He was said to have been robbed of his hand sets and an undisclosed amount of money and other valuables in his possession at the time of the incident. It was gathered that Amusan was beaten mercilessly by the robbers before he was left off the hook upon discovery of his identity by one of the men of the underworld.
Further investigation revealed that Amusan was in Ibadan to participate in a radio programme on Fresh FM. It was gathered that he couldn’t participate in the live radio programme as he was rushed to the hospital for medical attention.
All efforts to get the reaction of the Oyo State Police PRO, Ajisebutu proved abortive. But a source in his office who begged for anonymity said the matter was yet to be reported to the PPRO’s office from the affected police divisional offices.
