Nollywood actress, Uche Elendu has continued to receive backlash since she cried out that her shop was looted shortly after the Lekki shooting by men in camouflage.
Her colleague, Doris Ogala had called her out claiming that her loss was not enough to kick start a Go Fund me account.
Kemi Filani News reached out to Uche Elendu and she shares her own side of the story.
She said: “I am heartbroken to see what a peaceful protest turned into. People lost their loved ones, lost prosperities. Everyone is wailing. The blood stain on the Nigerian flag is very symbolic. We need lots of prayers to wipe off that stigma. This is a Democratic government; they are expected to listen to our pleas. We are so backward; yet a country so blessed with rich human and natural resources. Now innocent people are dead. What have we done to deserve this? No light, no good road, no good water system, education zero. “
On her losses, the single mother of two added, “My store in Lekki, Lagos was looted and other ones there too. Goods worth over N50 million were carted away. They removed everything. Even my Generator, my CCTV. I lost everything. I was sitting in my home when I saw photos of my store empty. Government, security officers couldn’t do anything to help an average Nigeria dispel these thugs from their continuous looting. Let the chaos stop, let peace prevail. This is a Democratic government.”
