Recounting her experience on Instagram a week after the devastating floods, the award winning actress said she is grateful she, together with her crew survived.
“Exactly one week today, Whilst filming #ewhas my new tv series my cast and crew were all inside this house located in Trasacco area and the wall broke down , house and compound was flooded and water level was as high as our waist. Cars were damaged, equipment damaged but we thank God for our lives and we made it out of the compound through the flood leaving everything behind,” she recounted.
Juliet Ibrahim added that, “The following day we went back there and we found out alligator was inside the house; my body creeps knowing we walked through the flood and such animals were loitering around as well.”
For the 152 lives that were lost, the actress and producer said, “May the souls of the departed of the tragic flood rest in peace. Amen! By the way, all the tenants of the estate are leaving the estate for the landlord to occupy by himself we thank God for revelation because it could have been worse.”
