Nollywood actress Kemi Afolabi has cried out about being in a state of shock and traumatized after armed robbers attacked her at Arepo.
This is coming a few days after the actress revealed how she battled an incurable disease that made her sell her properties and prepare for death.
Taking to her Instagram page, Kemi Afolabi noted that she experienced high poor insecurity, which has become a norm in Nigeria.
Narrating the incident, Kemi Afolabi said the armed robbers attacked her and her driver while returning from a movie set while in traffic.
Kemi Afolabi added that they left her whole body with wounds and skin in pain because of the impact of shattered glass and the use of cutlass on her body.
She 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.
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.
