Salami Rotimi, the Nigerian actor and filmmaker, says he was robbed at gunpoint while stuck in Lagos traffic.


In an Instagram post, Rotimi recalled the experience which he said happened on Badagry-Mile 2 road on Monday.

“In between trailers in standstill traffic, 4 very young boys showed up from nowhere, broke my car glass with a gun when I refused to whine down, threatening to shoot if I and my kid brother don’t drop our phones,” he wrote on Tuesday.

“I was sluggish to drop both phones. I gave one and while I was trying to disconnect the other and give to them, people showed up and chased them but they flee with 2 standby bikes parked on the other side of the road.”

The actor also urged the general public to ignore calls or WhatsApp chats that come from one of his phone numbers but speak directly with him before transacting any business.

Beyond acting, the film star brands himself as a model, producer, screenwriter, social worker, and entrepreneur.


As a filmmaker, he has production credits for such movie titles as ‘Letter To My Mother’ and ‘Beautiful World’.
