Nigerian Channel O Presenter, Denrele Edun was in shock last nite when men of the underworld visited their family residence at Yaba, Lagos and carted away valuables.

The former Sound City VJ who moved to South Africa based music channel, Channel O said he was at home at the time of the incident,

He stated that the robbers had pointed a gun on his head threathening to kill him but for the intervention of his grand mother who pleaded profusely with the robbers to let him live.

In a series of SOS tweets he sent earlier during the incident, the star had urged his fans to call the police and notify them of the incident as he was afraid for their lives since his mobile phones had beeen seized.

The eccentric presenter revealed that he used his sister’s Ipad to send the SOS tweets because fortunately,she had hid it under the bed when the robbers first struck.

The star said they lost most valuables including mobile phones, wristwatches, cash, jewellery among others.

However the situation ended with no lives lost but a slight injury sustained by his grand mother.

We thank God for the live of Denrele and his family members who went through this traumatic situation and came out alive.

It will be recalled that Denrele Edun lost his best friend, Goldie Harvey just few weeks back and was actually at a candle light procession earlier on the day of the incident.
