How I Escaped Beatings From Lagos Thugs – Deyemi Okanlawon


November 24, (THEWILL) – Nollywood actor, Deyemi Okanlawon, has narrated his unfortunate experience with an errant road user Thursday morning.

Okanlawon took to Twitter to reveal how he escaped beatings from thugs, after a driver, who brushed his car, raised a false alarm against him.

In his account of events, the ‘Blood Sisters’ actor stated that the said driver had called his assistant a thief after the latter tried to settle the matter amicably.

The false alarm then attracted area boys, who started hitting his assistant.

“Never been so livid! Guy scratches my car and my assistant went with him so we could settle the matter down the road”, he tweeted

“Guy drives another way, gets out of his car then starts shouting “THIEF”! Before I could figure what was going on area boys gathered & started beating my assistant!

“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 de-escalating the situation!

“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!”

Okanlawon added that he was still shaken from the experience as he came very close to physically hurting another human being.

“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 please deliver me from evil!” he prayed.
