Bimpe Akintunde has narrated how she and her daughter escaped an attack from suspected bandits while on their way to Lagos.

Nollywood actress, Bimpe Akintunde has revealed that she and her daughter escaped an attack from suspected bandits along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.

In a post shared on her Instagram page, Bimpe Akintunde said she was traveling to Lagos from Ibadan with her daughter when about ten bandits, clad in army uniform, hit the road and started shooting directly at vehicles shortly after they passed Oni-Garri axis of the highway.

The actress said she managed to turn her vehicle back and return to Ibadan.

She said, “Lets be careful on Ibadan express road. I escaped bandit attack at around after five this evening, after Oni-Garri on my way to Lagos. They were shooting at all of the vehicles coming from Ibadan. They’re like 10 in army uniform shooting directly at us.”

Sharing the post, the actress appreciated God for helping them escape the attack unscathed. She also decried the worsening insecurity in the country.

Akintunde said, “God saved me and my daughter, I can’t believe this. Like they were shooting directly at us!!! Where are we going in this country…broad daylight attack!!!”.

“God came through for us, I turned back, followed one-way and alerted other drivers too. Just help help me thank God for my life and that of my innocent daughter. We are back in Ibadan safe and healthy but in shock.”
