Actress Anita Joseph abducted, Toyota FJ stolen

Rising actress Anita Joseph has a bitter story to tell last Wednesday night as she was attacked by armed robbers who made away with her Toyota FJ Cruiser and other personal belongings.

The ugly incident happened around Ogba area of Lagos, same area where popular Yoruba actor, Femi Adebayo was also attacked at gunpoint while returning from Sango Ota, few months ago.

Eye-witness account said the curvy actress was abducted together with her two nephews aged between 3 and 1 year who were in the car by the armed bandits as they later dumped them at a hangout in Ijoko Ota, Ogun State, with N3000 as transport fares.

HVP gathered that Anita was robbed moments after an Entertainment journalist with The Punch Newspaper, Shina Oyetayo suffered the same fate. His Toyota Camry was also stolen at gunpoint at the same Ogba area.

Anita who recently released her debut single titled ‘Go Gaga’ has since returned home, but still traumatised resulting from the attack.

On the ugly incident however, Oyetayo narrates thus; ‘I was returning from work  at about 10:30 pm when I noticed a car tailing me. I stopped twice and they overtook me and I did as well but they still didn’t stop following  me. I couldn’t speed because my neighbour’s car was in between and I had to stop for my neighbour to go.

“ My in-law already opened the gate for me but I didn’t drive in just to be sure they were not after me. So, I parked outside the compound, and that was how they entered my car and took me away. They were five in number and armed to the teeth but I was lucky enough to be released at Ijoko. They didn’t beat me because I was gentle enough with them.” he added.  His Toyota Camry car  has since been recovered.
