Days after his house was robbed, popular comedian, Basketmouth, has thanked God for sparing his life and that of his family during a robbery attack at his Lekki Phase 1 house in Lagos State on Wednesday.
The comedian, who has been in the news in the past weeks following his spat with popular on air personality, Freeze, confirmed the robbery attack on Friday, saying he was happy that his family was doing fine after the two-hour robbery.
Basketmouth’s close friend, Bovi, broke the news of the robbery on his Instagram account on Wednesday, saying “Basketmouth was robbed this morning in his home in Lekki Phase 1 between the hours of 2 a.m and 4 a.m, 7th of September 2016. He and his family were held at gun point while the sad episode lasted. Nobody was hurt. Valuables were taken including the cctv device.
Speaking on his ordeal in the hands of the armed robbers, Basket said he lost a lot of valuables during the incident, adding that it was only the grace of God that spared him and his family.
He said he was happy that although they made away with his valuables, he joked that his sense of humour was not stolen.
According to him, “Yes I was robbed, yes they made away with a lot of valuables. The great thing is that they didn’t steal my sense of humour. Myself, my wife and kids were not harmed, so we thank God. Big thanks to everyone that reached out, may God bless you abundantly.”
