Actress Angela Okorie Narrates How She Escaped Being Shot By Armed Robbers On Her Birthday
In a chat with Saturday Beats, Angela Okorie narrates how she escaped being shot by armed robbers on her birthday. The Nollywood actress had taken to her Instagram page on her special day to disclose she had narrowly escaped death .
On her birthday last week, as she usually does on her special day, Angela Okorie spent the day with the underprivileged. She revealed that but for God, she could have been a dead woman by now. People who would have been writing ‘Happy Birthday’, would easily have flooded her photos with ‘Rest In Peace’ as she was accosted by men of the underworld after her charity event. She said:
“I am grateful to God for life. I am a humanitarian and I am always happy whenever I give back to the society. That was why I celebrated my birthday with the underprivileged.”
“My brother was driving and since the road was rough, he had to slow down because of a pothole. All of a sudden, he just told me to bend my head in the car because I was not concentrating. By the time I would realise what was happening, some armed robbers had double crossed us and they alighted from their cars with guns. They approached our car and cocked their guns, ready to shoot. They almost shot us but before we knew it, some officers of the Nigerian Customs Service showed up from nowhere. They intervened and immediately, my brother seized the opportunity to zoom off. That was how we were saved.
“I believe it was God that sent those Customs guys to us because they were not on the road and they came out from nowhere. When I saw the robbers, I was scared but I had faith in God. I wonder what would have happened if God was not on my side.”
