Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde says soldiers once pointed guns at her for speaking against the government

The award-winning actress made this known during an interview with The Guardian while reacting to her recent clash with the federal government. According to her, she wasn’t even moved by the comments made by the people in the corridors of power, because she has faced bigger battles before.

“I’m not overwhelmed by the reactions, especially the negative ones. I expected them. These ones were just talking. 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 about my safety. I worry for the safety of people around me,” she said.
