She took to her Facebook account to recount the experience afterwards, explaining that the robbers made away with her jewelries, phones and ATM cards with which they withdrew as much cash as they could from her bank accounts.

Here’s how she narrated the ordeal:
“I write with a heart filled with gratitude to God for his mercies are unending. 
“I had a terrible experience with the men of the underworld on Sunday night, they blocked my vehicle on Ojuelegba bridge, a Honda Accord in front, a small ash colored car behind, four armed men, three of them got into my car, letting their previous victim go while they drove off with me in the passenger seat and the other small car trailing behind. 
“My girlfriend who was driving in front of me noticed there was a problem and tried to confront them, [they] scared [her] off [with] their gun. 
“They drove [me to] an ATM machine, asked for my pin and withdrew as much as limit permitted on both my accounts, [then] they took my [phones] and jewelries, the little cash I had in my purse and then used my car to block another victim, leaving me on the bridge to find my way. 
“The last two days have [been] very traumatic for me as I’m still in shock. If not for God, I refuse to imagine what could have happened. 
“Vicky [my friend] had made reports at different police stations, luckily I blocked off my line but it seems that somehow, they might try to get in touch with persons on my phone list, whatsApp and Imo, [please] if u are on my contact list on either and [you] receive messages supposedly from me, [please] call me for confirmation.”
Jennifer Eliogu is a Nollywood actress who has enjoyed relative success in the industry over the years.

Though she claims to be married, she reportedly left her Switzerland based husband and returned to Nigeria after some time to continue her acting career.

Jennifer told in 2013 that she had to make the painful but practical decision as she couldn’t stand being a full time house wife.

On speculations that the collapse of her marriage informed her decision to relocate to Nigeria, she answered: “It is not true. We are still married, but I have already told you we have challenges and we are working around those challenges.”

The cases of robbery present a sorry situation and have left many in surprise considering the current efforts from the Lagos state government and the Nigerian police force to rid the state of criminal activities.

In a related development, four armed men attacked a convent at the SS Joachim and Anne Catholic church, Ijegun, Lagos on Saturday, April 9.

They forcefully entered the premises, found their way into the rooms and carted away valuables including phones, laptops and cash.

According to PM News, one of the security guards present at the scene of the attack was seriously injured as the robbers ensured there was no obstacle before them during and after the operation.

Similarly, on Tuesday, April 12, five armed men disguised as patients and attacked a private hospital in Shibiri, Ajangbadi, Lagos state.

They also made away with valuables but two of the five-man gang, Babatunde Bamidele and Idowu Balogun, were arrested.

According to The Punch, they were immediately taken to the Ajangbadi police station for questioning.

This leaves the state in a precarious condition given the spate of robbery attacks could have a negative effect on businesses, lives and properties within the Lagos metropolis.
