What could have been another tragedy in the Nigerian movie industry was averted last weekend when popular Yoruba actress, Laide Bakare escaped unhurt in an auto crash.
The accident, during which the actress’ Range Rover SUV with customised registration number L B O, was damaged, occurred in front of Ifo Police Station, Ogun State.
NollywoodReel gathered that the actress was said to be on high speed when a Nissan saloon car, driving out of the Police station rammed into her vehicle. It took the prompt intervention of policemen around to bring the tense situation under control.
Although the driver of the Nissan admitted to being at fault, both automobiles were detained at the Ifo Police Station.
A witness told NollywoodReel that “Laide really has her God to thank because she did not even sustain any injury. I have seen an accident of this nature claim lives before, but I think God is on her side.”
The source further opined that it was the ‘star’ status of the actress that made the jittery Nissan driver admit being at fault.
“He could have claimed otherwise, but I guess it was due to the respect he has for her. Both of them were at fault really because Laide too was on a rather high speed.”
The fact that Laide survived the accident unhurt is no doubt a relief, considering the calamities that have rocked the entertainment industry in recent times.
So far this year, actors like David Ihieze and Iyke Mkpu, one of the Nollywood pioneer actors have died, while famous actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo survived an auto crash which many thanked God did not claim his life.
