The armed robbers were said to have left with the cameras and other equipment they were shooting the movie with. Also at the scene of the robbery were Segun Ogungbe who was directing the movie, Bisi Babalola who was the movie producer and lead actress.

However, the case had been reported at the nearest police station and Muyiwa Adejobi the Ogun state police public relation officer had also visited the scene of the robbery attack as at the time of filing this report.
