Evan Okoro, the Nollywood actress, has cried out to Sheriff Oborevwori, the Delta governor, over the demolition of her properties in the state.


On Monday, the Delta state government commenced the demolition of illegal structures built on lands belonging to Dennis Osadebay University, Anwai-Asaba.

The properties located around the Musa Camp area were demolished by the state task force on recovery of government lands led by Frank Omare, the unit chairman.

In a series of posts on her Instagram page on Tuesday, Okoro lamented that she was “heartbroken”.


The actress said her sources of income, including a fish farm and plantation, have been destroyed.

Okoro also pleaded with Oborevwori to intervene in the matter. She added that “Nigeria has happened to me” — implying that she has become a victim of government policy.

“It is not fair. I am heartbroken right now. Why are they doing this to us? Nigeria has happened to me. Everything is gone. My fish farm is gone. My plantation is gone,” she said.


“Why me, Lord I worked very hard to make this money. My fish farm is gone my house is gone my plantation. My governor, please.

“My own property is down other people’s properties but we can still save.

“The governor might not be aware of this demolition… please let’s help save other people’s properties our dear governor please listen to our cry and temper justice with mercy…we are helpless.”
