Nollywood actor, Deyemi Okanlawon has shared his terrible encounter with some area boys in Lagos state.
Deyemi took to microblogging platform, Twitter to explain how a driver dented his car and raised a false alarm that almost implicated his assistant.
According to the actor, his assistant followed the motorist to talk about the incident but he was tagged as a thief instead and area boys pounced on him without question.
Deyemi said he almost lost his cool and hurt the individual but he was able to maintain his calm.
In his words;
“Never been so livid! Guy scratches my car and my assistant went with him so we could settle the matter down the road. Guy drives another way, gets out of his car then starts shouting “THIEF”! Before I cld figure what was going on area boys gathered & started beating my assistant!
Omo we were raised to value peace but have the training to really cause damage… still shaken up by how close I came to physically hurting another human being this morning! God o me that my career is just starting to make sense pls deliver me from evil!
He was really going to let area boys injure my assistant! A part of me actually wished he had tried to fight instead of pleading… I just know someone would have bled!
Of course the area boys, after one of them chopped slap for the stupidity of laying hands on my guy, turned on the guy once I showed up. I now had to choose between payback and deescalating the situation!”
