Fans and well-wishers of actress and singer, Angela Okorie, have continued to expressed worry after reports that the actress was allegedly shot by armed robbers. The disturbing incident reportedly happened when the singer was on her way back from a show on December 12. The news came to the attention of the public when a journalist, Stella Dimoko-korkus, posted a photo of her bloodied face and video of her damaged car.
Incessant calls to the actress and her manager were not answered. The last post on the social media savvy actress’ Instagram page was a picture of her performing at a show. She added the caption; “The Show mad oooooo. E go still pain. When God is on your side. Nothing fit do you, I’m Unstoppable. #Epaindem, #protectme.”
Some social media users were torn between her recent post and the photos and videos of the alleged attack.
Another actress Nkechi Blessing Sunday wrote, “These are not armed robbers. These are hired assassins. Blood of Jesus.”
A fan, @roasted_plaintain wrote; “Angela, are you alive? I heard you got attacked. Thank God for you.

@okwuluokaa wrote; “Goodness God!! Why is she still posting like nothing of such happened in this kind of state? Quickest recovery, I wish her.”
@osineblessing wrote; “God please keep her for her son and family. The other day she fell into a gutter at Quilox, now armed robbery. Please leave music oh, it’s taking you from club to club. Quick recovery Angela.”

It should be recalled that the actress had reportedly escaped being shot by armed robbers in 2017.
