Barely a week after launching his new car, the car has been crashed because of a robbery attack.

Oritsefemi’s team released a statement saying:

Unknown Armed Robbers chased Oritsefemi’s Range Rover SUV early Saturday morning, 6th December 2014 on Ikorodu Road, Lagos.

“The incident happened as we were going to finish up a meeting for my traveling arrangement today with Big Brother Africa officials in order to perform at the grand finale of the event in South Africa on Sunday 7th.

Yusuf ‘Danku’ Adepitan who was driving the Ranger noticed unknown gun men were chasing me -Oritsefemi as we were approaching Funsho Willams Road, Barrack Bus Stop, Surulere, and the suspected gunmen approached the driver. They ordered him to stop. Pointing guns at him, but Danku refused to stop. He accelerated trying to escape. While he was struggling with the robbers, a truck conveying loads of Cement hit the vehicle accidentally. The Range’s driver’s side was smashed. Danku lost control. The truck hit him by the chest through the driver’s side. The airbag came out immediately”, Oritsefemi revealed the accident.

“I was at the back seat with my brother. I quickly cried for help and Good Samaritans rushed out from unknown areas in Surulere to rescue Danku who was already in a coma. He could neither talk nor see anyone at this point”.

He has been hospitalized at a hospital in Ikeja, receiving treatment.

“I thank God for my life and manager. No life was lost. My fans should pray for me”, Oritsefemi Concluded.

      This is besides the point though. Pray for both, and leave off all the semantics. Pray for yourself and me too. We all need prayers.

    So yall believe robbers where really chasing them. It was either recklessness or an unavoidable accident. Trust me no armed robber was involved.

      Your absolutely right ‘deb’ …. no one was chasing him. The armed robber’s angle was completely made up in my opinion. Love Femi and his music … but they don’t need to tell us lies – who ever was driving messed up – nevertheless; it’s not really our business. Sorry about the car Femi and happy your still alive and still kicking.

    So not losing the range rover was so important that you tried to escape and ended up wrecking the car and injuring yourself?! What if after the wreck, they came and shot at you guys? #stupidity
    Please people do not argue with armed robbers or do James Bond escape things. I know 2 people who lost their lives that way.
    Plus there are numerous ways to disengage your car these days. Once my parents’ car doors have been opened and the cars are started without pressing the security button the engines stop 3 mins later.

    Some people are so daft to an extent of not known what to say. Instead of commenting on what you know nothing about,why don’t you keep your mouth short. May God guide you @Oritsefemi.

    This is very sad indeed. Oritse Femi is a very talented artiste, but this story stinks of deception. A deliberate play on our intelligence.

    its been a day now and there’s not been an update or a confirmation of the story. How come we have only one photo angle of the accidented vehicle. Fans deserve some respect.

    Lets see more proof of this fiction thriller Lol!! !

    Don’t judge what u can’t prove. Whether they are saying d truth or they r telling lies, none of u can prove it bcos u were not der wen it happened, so, u dnt av any choice than 2 accept wateva they say. May God continue to guide Femi and his manager.
