In a flurry of tweets on Wednesday, the movie star said the staff was attacked in the early hours of the day along Idowu Martins street in the Victoria Island axis of the state.

According to her, the cleaner managed to reach a nearby clinic. The fitness enthusiast said on getting to the health facility, the officials allegedly sent her back on the ground that they do not treat knife-related wounds.

Henshaw said the cleaner was eventually taken to another hospital where she was attended to.
