How I Was Almost Killed By Traffic Robbers – Nollywood Actress, Lizzy Gold Reveals (Video)

Published

on

Lizzy Gold Onuwaje, the Nollywood actress, who is popularly known as Lizzy Gold, has opened up on her horrific encounter with armed robbers in Onitsha, Anambra State.

The mother of two in a series of videos shared on her Instagram page revealed that she left Anambra State for Enugu around 6pm and subsequently got delayed by traffic at some point.

According to her, the unfriendly encounter occurred at 8:30pm when a man banged her car glass and began confronting her for plying on one-way.

She said the confrontation degenerated into a life-threatening situation as a gun was pointed toward her stomach at close range.

Narrating her experience, She said: “Please let’s be security conscious. Nowhere is safe.

“Two days ago, which is on Sunday, I wrapped up my girlfriend’s production. I told them I was leaving for Enugu because I had a job that I was going for. They have been waiting for me for like three days. Destiny, Mary, they told me not to travel.

“I told them I needed to go because there is no movement on Monday. So, I told them I needed to go. And I left. I was in traffic at the head Bridge for like two hours. I successfully passed the traffic. I got to a route you would take to go to Awka. It is usually very fast for me, so I passed the road.

“I met another traffic there. So, I was in traffic for another one hour. It was dark. It was 8.30pm. All of a sudden, I heard a very loud bang on my side glass window. I was shocked. So, I winded down. I was like hello, then a guy came and said, ‘do you know you are on the wrong lane?’ He was trying to bend my side mirror.

“So, I started to beg him. I told him I saw other cars passing through the same lane. The next thing, I wanted to wind up and he put my hands down and came in. Brought his head inside. My PA was seated beside me. His partner went to the other side of the window. So, the guy brought his head inside the car and said, if you make any noise, I will shoot you.

“He brought a gun and pointed at my stomach and told me to bring out everything that I have. He said I should give him my phone. I told him to take money instead of my phone because he would not be able to use the iPhone.

“I brought money out, as I was giving it to him. He said I should tell my brother to bring out all the money he has. I told him the PA is not with any money. I begged them after they threatened to kill me.”
