My life is in danger actress Evan Okoro cries out

Nollywood Actress Evan Okoro has cried out to her colleagues and fellow Nigerians to save her from certain persons who are after her life.

The movie producer via her Instagram page posted a series of videos of herself calling for help.

In a video she posted on Wednesday, the actress filmed herself running in the dark saying, “Okay guys, right now, I’m inside the police station, I don’t think anything will happen to me right now, I don’t think they can have any access to me.”

An hour later, she posted another video explaining the reason for the previous video. The actress who appeared to have swollen lips with bruises on her face stated that some unnamed persons were after her life due to a movie BIGO MADNESS she premiered on her YouTube channel, EvanokoroTv, last week.

“Guys my life is in danger, I don’t think I’m safe anymore, they want to kill me because of the movie I produced titled (sic) BIGO MADNESS, they asked 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,” she wrote in the caption.

The movie BIGO MADNESS is based on a live streaming app BIGO, where users and creators can broadcast and get paid for their video content.

In the movie description on YouTube, Evans explained that a lot of people castigated the movie and called her names for shooting it. She also claimed she had been “…banned from bigo for life” because of the movie.

In another video posted on Thursday, Evans called on her Nollywod colleagues and fellow Nigerians to save her.

“I don’t know where to go, I don’t know who to run to. They want to kill me because of a movie I shot,” she said.

In response to comments asking her to take down the movie from her YouTube channel, the actress said she had to keep the movie on the channel as evidence against false accusations levelled against her.

The comedienne explained that she was accused of “…shooting a misleading content(sic).” She pointed fingers at certain persons who reported her to BIGO authority for shooting porn.

She said, “If I pull this movie down now, I will have no evidence to fight these people I was accused of shooting a porn(sic), my movie is not porn, I only shoot comedy.”

She further explained that her movie was targeted at unemployed Nigerian youths whom she wanted to inform about the platform where they can earn money.

While The PUNCH has reached out to her, no reply has been received from her end at the time of filing this report.
