Veteran Nollywood actor, Hafiz Oyetoro a.k.a Saka’s home in Abeokuta, Ogun State, was on Monday night, August 8, attacked by armed robbers.
The actor’s filmmaker friend, Kayode Soaga, who confirmed the incident on Facebook on Monday, said the robbers demanded N20 million during the attack.
He noted that the robbers wielded pump action guns, machetes, and break-in tools and unleashed mayhem on the neighbourhood
Mr Soaga said the robbers broke into Saka’s house at about 2 a.m. heavily armed.
He said his security guards were tied down while three other houses on the street were robbed with more devastating effects.
“They broke the burglary proof and went straight to him, demanding N20m or his life, threatening to kill and destroy.
‘‘He begged and pleaded. They later came down to N3m, which he said he doesn’t have. They dazed him with a resounding slap etc. The armed robbers packed all android phones, iPhones, laptops and all available cash in the home and collected all ATM Cards,” he said.
He said the robbers came with POS to empty money in açcounts, saying Saka’s security guards were demobilised while the guards of his neighbours were not too lucky as they were shot several times in the arms.
“We thank almighty GOD for Saka’s Life and his family and neighbours.
Thankfully, Nobody died in this incident. He’s doing fine,” he added.
