Leading actress, Eniola Badmus, has refuted wild social media reports that she was shot at the Lekki Toll Gate on Tuesday and assured family, friends and fans that she is hale and hearty.
She said she was not at the Toll Gate when the soldiers invaded as she appreciated those she claimed had bombarded her with calls over her fate during the mayhem.
Badmus in an Instagram video message that followed an earlier post to friends said:
“So guys this is me, life and direct. Wow! I thank you so much, thank you so much to everyone that actually reached out to me. I am hale and hearty, there is nothing wrong with me I did not even go out today. Please do not cry for me, I am hale and hearty.
“There is nothing wrong with me. I am at home as you can see, I am not in the hospital; I am not in any kind of critical situation, look at me I am at home; I am hale and hearty guys. There is nothing wrong with me. Oh my God! I came back from road walk, I left my phones at home only for me to get back, I went into the shower. I decided to go through my phone and saw 300 missed calls. I was shocked.
“To all my friends and fans. Thank you so much for checking up on me and looking out. Thank you my friends, family, celebrities, musicians, footballers, and everyone; I am hale and hearty. There is nothing wrong with me, I am not dead. They did not shoot me. I did not even go out, I was just around my estate there is nothing wrong with me, please do not panic This fight is for all of us, we move still. We are tired but we know that the Lord will intervene.
“Guys, please do not panic, spread the word that I am not dead. I am alive. I am in a terrible state right now looking at everything happening online. It took me so much courage to come online but I have to let everyone know that I am fine. There is absolutely nothing wrong with me. Eniola Badmus is alive, I am not dead. This fight is for everybody.”
