Nollywood actress and singer Angela Okorie has disclosed that she once escaped an assasination attack in December 2019, a development which made her suffered severe post-traumatic stress disorder.
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 attack 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.”
