Adorable actor, Joseph Benjamin, has applauded Mansard Insurance Plc, for helping to recover his stolen car. Last Sunday evening, armed robbers snatched a 2007 Toyota Camry car belonging to Benjamin in Magodo, Lagos. The news of the robbery went viral on social media as tweets, Facebook posts and BBMs battled for prominence in blogosphere. At the time of the robbery, Joe Ben as he is also known was in Aberdeen, Scotland, for the screening of his breakthrough movie, Tango With Me. A friend of the popular host of soar away music reality television show, MTN Project Fame, was driving the car.
When contacted, Benjamin said the incident happened around 7pm. “I had just returned to London from Aberdeen for a photo shoot when my friend called and was hysterical on the phone. She said my car had been snatched in Magodo. She was crying her heart out so I had to calm her down and assure her that there was no problem. Immediately, I called my insurance company, Mansard (former Guaranty Trust Assurance Plc) and informed them of the theft. And they told me not to panic that the car would be recovered in no time. Not that I doubted them, but I felt the urge to broadcast the news on Blackberry just in case anybody saw it around. I also put my London phone numbers if anybody had information that could lead to the recovery of the car.”
Continuing, he said, “I was shocked when about 15minutes later, a staff of Mansard called me to say the car had been found in Ipaja area of Lagos and that they had demobilised it. The caller even said that the police was on their way to pick it. I didn’t believe it until my friend went to confirm that it was indeed true! I never knew insurance was like that o!” Benjamin concluded that he is happy that no life was lost in the incident. According to him, “I thank God for everything and Mansard Insurance for their efforts. Honestly, without the insurance, my car would have been gone for good. I enjoin people to endeavour to insure their cars, not just any insurance, but comprehensive insurance.”joe b
