Nollywood actress Angela Okorie was reportedly involved in a theft scandal in South Africa last weekend and was accused of stealing $3,200 from a friend's home.
Angela has however debunked the report, saying she was being blackmailed by a friend/fan named Prosper, whose sexual advances she had turned down and whose job in South Africa is to con and defraud new Nigerians in S.A.
Recounting what happened, she said she left Nigeria for South Africa with Prince Ekeh, Muma Gee’s husband on Monday April 7 2014, to shoot her movie, 'Nwa Abakaliki'.
She was lodging in a hotel until a friend of hers, M.K called her to come over to her place at North Gate Estate where she can pay less for accommodation. So she moved in. When she got there, she met another friend called Prosper who according to her is one of my biggest fans and he was also living in a separate room in the same house. After a while he satrted making sexual advances towards her which she declined. On good Friday, April 18th, he attempted raping but she threatened to kill him and go to jail if he ever tried it. After that incident, she moved out of the house into Hilton Hotel, Sandton that same day.
The next day, she said she got a call from Prince Eke that Prosper and some people were coming to meet me at the hotel and she said no problem, only for her to open her door and she saw three policemen with Prosper who claimed she stole his $3,200. She was arrested by the police but however released the following day, being April 20, 2014, Easter Sunday.
Angela has vowed to take up the matter in a reputable law court after she discovered that Prosper's job is to defraud strangers who have come with money for a project and he also works hand in hand with the police.
She is also angry with Prince Ekeh who according to her, she paid his flight ticket and accommodation to help him and his family because his wife, Muma Gee has been the only one assisting his career, only for him to pay her back with cheap blackmail.
"Prince is an ingrate. I paid for his ticket from Port Harcourt to Lagos and from Lagos to South Africa He was not even happy that my passport was released to me. I keep asking myself why? what does he want to achieve? Anyway, I have told him and his accomplice who tried to rape and blackmail me that I am taking this up in a reputable law court” she said
