Popular Yoruba movie actress, Kemi Afolabi was injured by robbers at Arepo, Ogun State along the Lagos-Ibadan expressway.
The actress was attacked by cutlass wielding robbers on Tuesday night while she was returning home from a movie shoot. She was left with a cut on her hand.
In a post on Instagram, she revealed that her driver was also attacked and the windscreen of her vehicle destroyed.
She wrote, “I am in a state of shock! Traumatised!! 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, and 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.
