According to Alariwo, “I run an orphanage home with my sister (Kenny Aiyeola), which is located behind (Yinka) Ayefele’s house (in Ibadan). I was going home with my sister after a busy day, and before we could close the gate, some men came out with guns and I quickly put my car on reverse and sped off.
“My car hit the gate in the process, but I escaped with four bullet wounds.”
Meanwhile, Alariwo confirmed that he has been discharged from the hospital
