Gabriel Uzoma, a comedian, is said to have escaped an assassination attempt after his estranged lover, Victory Kelechi Joseph, allegedly hired suspected armed robbers in military uniforms to break into his Lagos home and kill him.
According to reports, the incident occurred on Uwagboe Street in the Ipaja neighborhood of Lagos, where Uzoma and his friends live.
According to the residents, Uzoma narrowly escaped the attack because he did not return home that day, but his friends, Emmanuel Eldon and Austine Alfred, who were found in his house, were brutally attacked at gunpoint.
The armed men allegedly broke into the house to attack Uzoma, but when they couldn’t find him, they destroyed the television, took two laptops, a Canon camera, and N555, 000 in cash belonging to Uzoma before fleeing.
Victory Kelechi Joseph was said to have received N20,000 as compensation for her share of the loot after the robbery operation.
The incident was reported to the Ipaja Division Police, who followed Victory Kelechi, a 20-year veteran, to her hideout. She was apprehended and taken to the police station for questioning.
