Actress Angela Okorie asserts that she endured significant Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) following her escape from an assassination attempt in December 2019.

She shared her struggles with insomnia and acute stress disorder for more than three years during a recent podcast hosted by her colleague, Iyabo Ojo. Okorie disclosed how she had to constantly travel with security to prevent further incidents.

Additionally, she claimed that someone within the movie industry sponsored the assassination attempt on her life.

“I went through hell. We were actually coming from a show when we were attacked by gunmen. It was very traumatizing. 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 traumatized, 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.”

It was reported 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.

Social media was recently abuzz after Wizkid referred to Don Jazzy as an influencer while replying to an alleged diss comment from Mavin Records signee Ladipoe. Rapper Ladipoe had posted that Afrobeats stars were experiencing their own “Afrobeats is dead era,” similar to the “hip hop is dead era” that Nigerian hip hop had gone through.
