D’banj was reportedly attacked by area boys last Saturday, at Tin Can Port, Lagos. According to the Entertainer he showed up for a video shoot in a Toyota RAV 4 with registration number KJA6158BE.
According to eyewitness accounts, as soon as the area boys laid their eyes on him, they demanded he settle them with cash but before he could speak a word, they deflated his tyres.
Knowing he could not overpower the area boys who numbered over 50, D’banj disembarked and they had escorted him to an ATM where he withdrew an undisclosed sum to settle them.
However, the area boys refused to disperse and stripped him of his wristwatch and other jewellery including his shoes. They only shifted ground after police men came to his rescue.
According to an eyewitness who spoke to Entertainer:
“I’m so excited, D’banj came to Tin Can Island to shoot a video and guys saw him. They burst his tires and held him hostage. He had to embrace every one of them and later he took them to an ATM where he withdrew some cash for them and shared among them.
I love D’banj; it’s good to be a star.”
