Nollywood actor Deyemi Okanlawon opened up about his unfortunate experience with a misguided road user on Thursday morning.
Okanlawon revealed on his Twitter how he escaped being attacked by thugs after a driver brushing his car set off a false alarm for him.
In a description of the incident, the Blood Sisters actor said the driver called his assistant a thief after trying to resolve the matter amicably.
The false alarm then attracted “Area Boys” and started beating the 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.
