Some Yoruba actors going for a movie production in Ilorin, Kwara State, were on Monday attacked by some hoodlums suspected to be herdsmen.
One of those attacked during the incident was a popular actress known as Toyisi Adesanya, who called on federal government to intensify efforts to safeguard lives and properties of Nigerians.
It was gathered that one of the actors, identified as Juwon, lost his life during the shooting by the bandits, who reportedly jumped on the Ogbomoso/Ilorin Expressway and started shooting sporadically at motorists plying the Otte area of the road.
According to Punch, the deceased also worked as a personal assistant to Toyosi Adesanya, who was on the journey with other colleagues of hers.
“We can’t continue like to this. The poor boy’s life was just taken away like that. We can’t continue to be held to ransom by some armed bandits. The FG should come to our aid,” the actress fumed.
Confirming the incident, Kwara State Police Public Relations Officer, Mr Ajayi Okasanmi, said the incident involved some actors and actresses going to shoot a film at a location, adding that investigation had commenced on the incident.
