- Angela Okorie has alleged that the assassination attempt that was made on her life some years back was sponsored by her colleague.
- The actress admitted that the incident made her suffer from PTSD and couldn’t go out without tight security.
- Okorie revealed this while on a podcast with colleague, Iyabo Ojo.
Popular Nigerian film actress cum singer, Angela Okorie, has revealed that she suffered from severe post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), after she escaped an assassination attempt in December 2019.
She said she battled with insomnia and acute stress disorder for over three years and was constantly under security surveillance.
The thespian also alleged that someone in the movie industry sponsored the assassination attempt on her life.
Speaking in a recent podcast interview hosted by her colleague, Iyabo Ojo, Okorie said:
“I went through hell. We were actually coming from a show when we were attacked by gunmen. It was very traumatising. For three good years, it was hard for me to have a relationship or do anything.
“I had PTSD. And then I developed insomnia, shock disorder, and all that. I had to always move around with security. It’s so embarrassing because there are some places you want to go to that you don’t need security but because I was traumatised, I don’t know who was about to shoot me again. So I had to.
“It was an assassination attack sponsored by someone in the movie industry. It’s from the industry because we were coming from a show.”
Recall that Angela Okorie announced via Instagram in 2019 that she narrowly escaped assassination, saying, “10 bullets were removed from my head and 2 bullets close to my eyes.”
Months ago, Angela Okorie admonished her female colleagues to stop pretending that acting alone is behind their lavish lifestyle.
In an interview with Factory 78, Angela Okorie stated that many of her colleagues have other side hustles to fund their lifestyle.
According to her, the only reason why actresses are more successful than their male colleagues is because they have other sources of income.
She noted how upcoming actresses, who have barely lasted a year in the industry, flaunt mansions and credit the industry for their expensive possessions.
For her, such acts makes those who have been in the industry for years, look unserious.
Angela reiterated that they can’t tell her, acting alone is behind such lifestyle as she is also in the field and has been there for years.
