Queen of tube, Funmi Iyanda escapes death
•Driver, sister shot. Both @ LUTH
•N7 million 2008 Camry stolen
It was a moment of mixed-blessings for the household of Nigerian queen of the tube, Funmi Iyanda on Monday in Lagos. Funmi, who is the host of New Dawn and, of recent, Funmi's Favourites escaped death when dare-devil armed robbers swooped on her N7 million Toyota Camry 2008 model at the Western Avenue in Lagos.
The attack, which took place on the Western Avenue, saw the driver and her sister who acts as her P.A being shot. Funmi, however, escaped the gruesome attack because she was not in the car.
The driver and the young lady, as at the time of writing this report, were undergoing surgery at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) to remove bullet-pellets lodged in various part of their body.
At the moment, Funmi is happy that her people are alive to tell their stories, but unhappy that the car she recently acquired for the whopping sum of N7million has been snatched.
The incident has been reported to the police and they are still investigating.
