Nollywood actress, Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde, has revealed that military men have threatened her with guns in the past for speaking against past governments.

The 41-year-old disclosed this in an interview with Guardian while reacting to the backlash received after saying the Buhari-led government has made life ‘hellish’ for Nigerians.

“I’m not overwhelmed by the reactions, especially the negative ones. I expected them. These ones were just talk. I faced bullets before. I faced military men pointing guns at me, and so, the negative reactions were nothing to me. And why would I want to ruffle any nest? Who doesn’t want to hide his or her head? Do you know that when I had cause to speak up against previous governments, I was attacked? Not by words alone.

 

“But my business, my personal life, my finances were attacked. It is not something I enjoy doing, but sometimes, I worry too like every other normal human being. I worry for my safety. I worry for the safety of people around me,” she said.

Recall that early this month, Omotola took to her twitter handle to condemn President Buhari and Vice President, Yemi Osinbajo, saying that life for most Nigerians under the administration had become ''Hellish''.
