Nollywood actress, Kemi Afolabi, has been attacked by armed robbers on her way from a movie shoot.
Afolabi made the disclosure via pictures and videos shared on her Instagram page on Wednesday, 5 January, 2022.
The popular Yoruba actress disclosed that she was attacked alongside her driver in the Arepo area of Ogun State on Tuesday night, 4 January, 2022.
Afolabi, who noted that the armed robbers left her with wounds, revealed that her arm was cut with cutlass, adding that her driver was hit in the head by the assailants.
The actress wrote: “I am in a state of shock! Traumatized!!
“I haven’t closed my eyes to sleep since yesterday.
“I also experienced the highly poor insecurity state in Nigeria which has become a norm. No matter how much we scream and cry it always falls on deaf ears of those who govern us even when death is involved.
“My driver and I were attacked by armed robbers at Arepo where I went to film while in traffic on our way back home yesterday. They broke my windscreens, left my whole body with wounds and skin in pains because of the impact of the shattered glass which was forcefully broken while I was in the car, my arm was cut with cutlass, they took my phones, belongings and ran off! Sadly my driver also took a hit to his head.”
She further expressed appreciation to God, saying: “Still I am thankful because it could be worse!
“However, this is nothing compared to what I’ve been through in recent times.
“No matter what may come my way, I will forever be grateful to God for preserving my life.
“PS: This message is typed via my daughter’s phone. If you are not able to reach me for now; you know why. IT IS WELL,” Afolabi stated.
