Angela Okorie, the popular Nollywood actress and singer, has revealed that she suffered from severe post-traumatic stress disorder after she escaped an assassination attack in December 2019.
She said she battled with insomnia and acute stress disorder for over three years and was constantly under security surveillance.
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.
Recall 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.”
