Robbers invades Nkem Owoh's house
-- Cart away his Black Montero Jeep, other valuables
The Enugu residence of star actor, Nkem Owoh, has been raided by yet-to-be-identified hoodlums who carted away his Mitsubishi Montero Jeep with number plate BU 64 FST, alongside other valuables.
Owoh, who was in Abuja when the robbery incident occurred, confirmed the report on telephone on Thursday morning.
Owoh, popularly known as Osuofia in the Nigeria movie industry, also lost his Toshiba laptop and camcorder to the intruders, who broke into his house at Phase 6, Tran’s Ekulu, Enugu.
The actor, who spoke on phone, said: “I was in Abuja last week Saturday when my neighbours called that it was like my place was burgled, that my gate appeared to be open.
“I asked them to check and they reported back that out of the three vehicles parked in the compound, the Jeep was no longer there.
“I called my driver and asked him to make a report to the police immediately, which he did.”
Owoh, who has returned to Enugu as a result of the incident, further revealed that the robbers removed the burglary roof in his window, through which they were able to remove the laptop.
He said there are no suspects for now but noted that the police had been alerted.
