The Nollywood actress revealed that she had been suffering insomnia and acute stress disorder following the incident and she was under constant protection.

Speaking in a podcast hosted by Iyabo Ojo, she had alleged that the attempt on her life had possibly been sponsored by someone in the movie industry.

She said: “I went through hell. We were actually coming from a show when we were attacked by gunmen. It was very traumatizing. 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 traumatized, I don’t know who was about to shoot me again. So I had to.
