Dumelo disclosed the ordeal on his Instagram page on Saturday as he gave a detailed account of the incident.
Yesterday we were attacked by armed robbers on our way back to the hotel from filming in Nigeria. The robbers wearing black, blocked the car we were in, got down with their guns and walked towards our car. It was God who took over the wheel. Our driver swerved and sped off. They just stood there watching. As if to say "these are not the people we have to rob". Anything could have happened to us. 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. #Jesustookthewheel #praiseGod
He expressed his appreciation to God for keeping him and his friends safe saying: “It was God who took over the wheel. Our driver swerved and sped off. They just stood there watching. As if to say “these are not the people we have to rob”.
Dumelo is currently in Nigeria to shoot a movie.
