Sadly comedian Basketmouth and his family were attacked & robbed at gunpoint today at his home in the Lekki Phase 1 area of Lagos.

According to Comedian Bovi the criminals invaded his home at 2am and held them captive for two hours while they carted away valuable items.

He wrote on his Instagram page,

@basketmouth was robbed this morning in his home in lekki phase 1 between the hours of 2am and 4am, 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. A report has been made at the police station. He can’t be reached at the moment but will be back on as soon as possible.

Glad to hear no one was physically harmed. I can’t imagine the emotional trauma they’ll be going through though.

I’ve never heard of armed robbers breaking into homes in Lekki while the occupants are at home. Especially at that time…
