Ace Nigerian comedian, Basketmouth has finally spoken up on the robbery incident at his Lekki home.
Speaking with Punch, Basketmouth says while he would not go into the details of how his family was ambushed that early morning of September 7, he is most grateful that his children did not witness the horror.
“I will rather not talk about the robbery incident because it is in the past now. I just thank God nobody was hurt.” he told Punch, adding, “My kids were asleep throughout the incident so that is something to really thank God for as the trauma would have messed them up for a while.”
The news of the robbery was revealed by Bovi Ugboma, who noted that the family were held at gun point and their valuables stolen.
According to his close friend Bovi, the comedian and his family were ambushed by robbers who stormed their home in the early hours of that day and carted away their valuables.
“He and his family were held at gun point while the sad episode lasted,” Bovi said. “Valuables were taken including the cctv device. A report has been made at the police station. He can’t be reached at the moment but will be back on as soon as possible.”
The sad news came just weeks after Basketmouth’s wife Elsie Okpocha took to her Instagram to hint that they have a new home in a highbrow area of Lagos.
However, the comedian has put this experience behind him.
Speaking about his career, he hinted that he will be dropping his first movie.
“I have had to put my music career to rest for now as I have a lot of projects before me but soon, I will revisit it. Also, I have been working on a movie for a while now, but due to time constraint, I have not been able to start production but I will do so soon though,” he said.
