Popular Nigerian Celebrity Blogger and Publisher Escapes From Armed Robbers in Lagos

Linda Ikeji, the popular Nigerian celebrity blogger and publisher escaped from being robbed Friday afternoon at the Finicky restaurant and bar at the Kilo Bus stop in Surulere, Lagos, Nigeria.

She was having her meal with a close friend from Bonny Island when four armed robbers on motorbikes attacked customers at the fancy restaurant and bar and robbed them of their valuable possessions. She and her friend had to hide upstairs whilst the armed robbers robbed customers on the ground floor. The robbers later came upstairs and left when they did not see any customer or staff there. She and her friend thanked God for their narrow escape and vowed never to patronize the Finicky at the Kilo Bus stop again.

"It's an embarrassment to hide in the toilet," said one of the lucky customers who said he was among the customers who had to hide in the toilets upstairs.
