John Dumelo, a Ghanaian movie star, says he was attacked by armed robbers in Nigeria while returning to his hotel from a movie location.
Dumelo said the robbers blocked the car he and some actresses were in, got down with their guns and walked towards them.
However, he said their driver was able to evade the robbers and speed off.
"They just stood there watching. As if to say "these are not the people we have to rob", he said of the robbers.
Dumelo attributed their narrow escape to work of God, saying: "My brothers and sisters, there is God! Believe in Him and He shall protect you. I thank God for my life and the lives of my fellow actresses in the car."
Many of the actor's fans joined him in praising God.
