July 22, (THEWILL) – Evan Okoro, a Nigerian actress, has taken to social media to allege death threats from some quarters because of her latest movie, “Bigo Madness.”
Okoro uploaded several videos on her Instagram page, crying and calling on her colleagues and the public at large to come to her aid.
She said in one of the videos: “My life is in danger. I need you guys, where are my Nollywood people, where are my fellow Nigerians. I don’t want to die, they want to kill me.
“I need your help, not when I die than I would be seeing my posts everywhere with rest in peace (RIP) tags. I don’t know where to go from here, or who to run to.
“I am very scared right now, they want to kill me because of a movie that I shot. Just a movie!”
In a different clip, Okoro stated that she had managed to escape being lynched by her attackers.
She said: “I am at the police station. Some group of boys from Bigo want to end my life for nothing. Look at what they did to them. They asked me to pull down my movie or else they would terminate my life. Thank God I escaped from them.”
She spoke while displaying a bruised face.
In a post accompanying the video, she wrote: “Guys my life is in danger, I don’t think I’m safe anymore, they want to kill me because of the movie that I produced tittle Bigo Madness.
“They ask me to pull down the movie or they will end my life, that they don’t want the app to go viral….. Please I need help, am at the police station right now, scared of going back home.”
