Tima Yeboah, host of popular telenovela Kumkum Bhagya bumped into armed robbers on Friday, January 19 around 11:30 pm when driving home after work.
Tima who confirmed the story to Zionfelix.net Saturday evening disclosed that the accident happened at New Bortianor, a suburb in Accra, right after the U-turn at Westhills Mall. Narrating how the incident happened, the Multimedia worker revealed that one of the two robbers was lying on the road and the other by the roadside pleading for them to help his ailing brother when she was approaching the scene with her driver.
According to her, she asked the driver to bypass the man on the floor because she knew that it was a trick but her driver who felt sorry for the unknown person on the floor pleaded they stop to help since the two men were in trouble.
Tima Kumkum as she is fondly called continued that the man on the floor pulled a gun as soon as they stopped requesting for items on them. Miss Yeboah then got out of the car and presented a whooping sum of Gh1200 she had on her. Asked how they broke free from the confinement, the actress and voice-over artiste told Zionfelix.net that the muggers made a quick exit after they saw a police patrol team approaching the scene.
The TV and radio host further said her phones fell from her lap when rushing to step out of the car to present the money to them else they would have taken her phones as well.
She promised to report the issue to the police on Monday.
