Nigerian Singer cum Politician, Bankole Wellington has narrated his
ordeal with robbers who told him to sing for them after robbing him in
Lagos Island.

The EME Boss who spoke at ‘Monday Night Live’, a
programme hosted by a Gospel artiste Tim Godfrey said the incident
occurred on a certain December 31 night ‘crossover’ service after he
dropped off a friend.

In his words ;

“I recall that after a certain December 31 night
‘crossover’ service, I was on my way to the island after dropping a
friend. On getting to where my friends were, I stopped and alighted. The
next thing I felt was a slap at my face. Lo and behold, I saw four
armed robbers. I opted to give them the key of my rickety car. They
slapped me again, saying, ‘Who wants your car’? They told me to move to
the back seat of the car while they used my car to rob others. They took
my money, jewellery, phone and cap.”

“At one point, one of the armed robbers told the others,
‘Let us take him to Ajah and kill him.’ I started begging them not to
kill me. I told them I am a singer. They then asked me to tell them the
songs I had recorded. When I mentioned ‘Ebute Metta’ ‘Capable’ and
others, the robbers expressed surprise saying, ‘So you are Mr Capable?
Sing for us.’ That was the scariest free show I ever did in my life. I
had to sing to armed robbers.”
