Actress Bimpe Akintunde popularly known as Wasila Coded has expressed gratitude to God for escaping an attack from suspected bandits along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on Saturday afternoon.
The Yoruba movie star in a post on Instagram thanked God for safe arrival in Lagos.
“To God be the glory we arrived our home in Lagos not too long ago. It’s a thanksgiving Sunday for me today. Oluwaseun ni tori aanu re duro titillate,“she wrote.
Narrating her ordeal in an Instagram post on Saturday, Bimpe said she was travelling to Lagos from Ibadan with her daughter when the incident happened.
“Let’s 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,” she wrote.
“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!!!” she added.
Akintunde appreciated God for helping them escape the attack unharmed. She also decried the worsening insecurity in the country.
She also thanked some of her colleagues like Mercy Aigbe, Madam Saje, Bimbo Akinsanya and others for their support.
