Gunmen suspected to be armed robbers have reportedly attacked a famous Nigerian comic actor, Afeez Oyetoro, popularly known as “Saka”. 

The gunmen reportedly stole his mobile phones and laptops among other valuables. 

The attack took place at his residence in Abeokuta, Ogun State early Tuesday morning. 

The hoodlums were said to have demanded the sum of N20 million from the actor, which was later reduced to N3 million. It was learnt that when he could not provide the money, they assaulted him before stealing some of his belongings. 

Oyetoro’s friend, Kayode Soaga, confirmed the attack in a statement. 
Soaga stated that the robbers went to the house of the celebrity with a point-of-sale machine otherwise known as POS. 

The statement read in part, “The robbers broke into his home at about 2 am, heavily armed with pump action guns, machetes, breaking-in tools. His security guards were tied down and demobilized. 
“Three other houses on the street were robbed with more devastating effect. They broke the burglary proof and went straight to him demanding N20 million or his life. Threatening to kill and destroy. 
“He begged and pleaded. They later came down to N3 million naira 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. Also collected all ATM cards. The robbers came with POS to empty money in accounts.” 
“Saka’s security guards were demobilized 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 as he’s doing fine,” the statement added. 
The 59-year-old actor is said to be doing fine with his family following the incident.
