NOLLYWOOD: Are Femi Adebayo's Enemies After Him?
Popular Yoruba movie actor and political aide to the Kwara State Governor, Femi Adebayo Salami, had an experience that felt like something out of a Nollywood film.
He has taken to his Instagram page to appreciate God after he narrowly escaped an alleged attack by gunmen in Lagos.
Adebayo in his post said that he is aware of the risks involved in his work as an actor and politician before narrating how two gunmen trailed his car in broad daylight around the Magodo area of Lagos.
Adebayo revealed that he was not in the car when the incident occurred and added that his driver was not harmed.
The film star said he suspected that the attackers were assassins who probably thought he was riding in the vehicle.

???? I thank God for his protection over me and mine. I know my job comes with its risk. Working as an Actor and Politician requires my regular movement. . . Today, Just at the U turn coming from CMD Magodo around 7UP heading towards Ojota, my vehicle was accosted by men in a Toyota Corolla. They crossed my vehicle at the U Turn. 2 men alighted from the vehicle bearing AK47s. They tried to force the doors open. They kept hitting my car with the butt of their gun. In the process, they broke the door handle and left dents on different parts of my vehicle. . . All these happened in full view of other vehicles and other individuals passing by. In the short time this happened, no one came to help. The guys were obviously not Policemen, they didn’t wear any Insigna of the force. They wore plain clothes and had extra guts to perform this act during the day at about 12 noon. . . Their assumption will have been that I was in the vehicle but my driver was the only one enroute to my location. With swiftness, he was able to maneuver and speed off. I thank God for keeping him. We are all still shocked at this but grateful to God that no life was lost in the process. ??#FemiAdebayo
