Breaking News: Actor, Ime Bishop Robbed in Delta State, now Stranded

Popular comic Nollywood actor, and Special Assistant to Akwa Ibom State Governor Udom Emmanuel on Social and Ethical Reorientation, Ime Bishop, is currently sad.

The actor has just had an ugly encounter with men of the underworld as he has just been robbed while in Warri, Delta state, for a performance when the incidents occurred.

Ime was robbed on Monday as valuable items like phones and cash were carted away by the armed bandits, who threatened to kill the actor.

According to his wife, Idara, "So pathetic that the more we pray for a better Nigeria, the more things become so sour, few minutes ago, I saw a strange number calling and the voice I heard was my hubby's voice.

I was surprised to see him used a strange number to call, I quote him "Baby pray for me, I've just been robbed by Robbery men in Warri, and all my gadgets and money have been taken away from me, threatening to kill me also, I'm stranded and the event I'm supposed to attend here, I can't make it anymore, no contact to communicate with anyone for direction, except yours." For the first time I'm feeling this way, how on earth can someone do this to another man, even to the one that God has given to this country and the world as a gift of antismile to clear away people's sadness.

I pray only to God to touch their minds, and as they have said, they will return the phones and other items taken, but only and if money will be paid to them without informing the police, which is not a problem. I pray for my husband's safety and that of my family, may God continue to keep and preserve my household, also pray for the safety of all my husband's colleagues.”
