“I Was Traumatised After Escaping Assassination Attack” – Angela Okorie Spills


After surviving a three-year assassination attempt, veteran actress Angela Okorie has discussed her severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

She had been attacked by some unknown assailants in December 2019, and she had made it out with her life intact.

After the incident, the Nollywood actress disclosed that she was constantly protected and that she was experiencing acute stress disorder and insomnia.

She had claimed that the attempt on her life may have been funded by someone in the film industry while speaking in a podcast hosted by Iyabo Ojo’s podcast.

She said:

“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.”
