Angela Okorie, a Nollywood actress and singer, has stated that she suffered from severe post-traumatic stress disorder after escaping an assassination attempt in December 2019.
She claimed she had been suffering from insomnia and acute stress condition for more than three years and was continuously under security surveillance.
The actress also claimed that someone in the film industry paid for the murder attempt on her life.
“I went through hell,” Okorie said in a recent podcast interview held by her colleague, Iyabo Ojo. We were on our way home from a show when we were ambushed by gunmen. It was quite traumatic. It was difficult for me to have a relationship or accomplish anything for three years.
“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.”
Kanyidaily recalls that Angela Okorie announced via Instagram in 2019 that she narrowly escaped an assassination attack, saying, “10 bullets were removed from my head and 2 bullets close to my eyes.”
