Actress Bukola Arugba, ex-wife of actor Damola Olatunji, has escaped death from a ghastly accident that wrecked her car.

Bukola narrated how the incident happened in an Instagram post on Wednesday while celebrating her birthday.

According to her, the incident happened as she was driving home on Third Mainland Bridge when a car intentionally hit her car and kicked her off the road.

The actress who shared a video of the damaged car revealed that her vehicle sat at the edge of the bridge and they all thought all hopes were lost but God came through for them and they came down unhurt.

“This happened a day to my birthday, I kept this to celebrate and thank GOD ALMIGHTY first, my KEEPER, OLOWOGBOGBORO HALLELUJAH. We were on third mainland bridge, driving home gently, road was free, suddenly a vehicle came from behind as though it wanted to overtake us, but he turned abruptly and gave the car a hard hit that looked intentional, my car started turning, hitting different angles and all we could shout was JESUS, it faced d bridge, we thought it was over, but suddenly it made a turn, and sat at the edge of the bridge, surely there is power in JESUS name,” she wrote.

Narrating further, Bukola said they started calling for help but she got a feeling that it was not over as another car came from nowhere and gave the car a harder push.

The actress said she was left wondering how her car got bashed two times in the space of an hour.

She wrote: “We came down unhurt and started calling friends while waiting, I started sensing something bad was about to happen again, then I started praying at the top of my voice by the car. None of the passing vehicles stopped cos it was late.

“I had barely stopped praying when another vehicle came from nowhere and gave the car a harder and stronger bash repositioning the car by automatically lifting the car to the road, u don’t want to imagine the state I was left in. How and why would my car be bashed twice within the space of an hour? If this was plotted in a movie scene it would be tagged “unrealistic”. But hey? This is real!”
