Emeka Rollas, President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, has spoken out over Nollywood actress Chinedu Bernard’s untimely death.
Chinedu passed away on April 29 after collapsing while cleaning the Chapel of St. Leo the Great Catholic Church Federal Housing. Rev Fr. Uchendu Chukwuma, a priest, and some parishioners took her to Enugu’s East Side Hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Here’s where you can learn more.
Rollas raised doubts about the circumstances surrounding her death in a post on his Instagram page this afternoon.
”Many questions yet to be answered concerning the death of Actress Chinedu Bernard.
1. How can someone who slumped inside a church sustain bruises on the face?
2. Who are Chinedu’s parishioners friends?
3. Who are Chinedu’s friends in Enugu where she is practising her craft?
So it’s either someone killed her or she took a suicidal substance and decided to die in the church. Autopsy must be conducted to ascertain the main cause of her death. Let me use this medium to address Actors. No man is an Island.
It’s gross irresponsibility for any Actor to be in an Industry such as ours without being up to date with the Actors Guild of Nigeria. Stop hiding under all those ridiculous WOODS as an Actor to claim you are a certified actor. Because Once there is an issue whether in good or bad light, the pressure comes on AGN as if AGN is anybody’s next of kin. Please social media hailing, accolades is not love. Even Animals move in clusters ”
