Upon realising he was being followed, the singer drove into a nearby compound but as soon as he parked to find out why he was being followed, the assailants forced him out of his car, beat him several times with a hammer on the head, leaving him unconscious and went away with his car, a Toyota Fielder, registration number UAZ 399J
The manager further states that Chris Evans is recuperating with injuries at Mengo Hospital and will keep fans posted.
