Actress Eniola Badmus says she is “hale and hearty.”

Nollywood actress Eniola Badmus has come out to disperse reports claiming she was shot dead during the Lekki Tollgate gun attack on #EndSARS protesters on Tuesday, October 20, 2020.

The military reportedly cracked down on #EndSARS protesters at Lekki Tollgate on Tuesday night, with several shots fired and many injured and feared dead.

Following the incident, a video making the rounds on the internet sparked reports that the actress was among those who were shot at the demonstration ground.


The reports stated a woman who resembled Badmus was shot at the protest ground and this led many people to believe it was the actress.

However, on Wednesday, October 21, 2020, the movie star took to her Instagram page to release an official statement addressing concerned fans about her current wellbeing.

In her post, Badmus debunked the death reports, stating that she is very much alive. She also revealed that she wasn’t even at the protesting ground on the day of the shooting.

She said:

“Against all speculations about me being shot or dead at the unspeakable incident that happened at the toll gate few hours ago, I would like to inform you guys that I Eniola Badmus is hale and hearty. In fact, I couldn’t make it there today to lend my voice on the #endsars movement.”

“But in truth, I am broken and scattered to see what my country has become. We are tired and it’s becoming one time too many, how is it wrong to demand for our right/ expectations and be killed at it. How?

“We wont forget this day – 20.10.2020 in a long time.

“May the souls of the fallen heros Rest In Peace!”
