“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. Still, I am thankful because it could be worse!
“However, this is nothing compared to what I’ve been through in recent times,” She added.
