President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, has spoken about the sudden demise of Nollywood actress Chinedu Bernard.
Chinedu died after she slumped while cleaning the Chapel of St. Leo the Great Catholic Church Federal Housing on April 29. The Priest Rev Fr. Uchendu Chukwuma and some parishioners rushed her to East Side hospital Enugu where she was confirmed dead. Read here.
In a post shared on his Instagram page this afternoon, Rollas raised questions about the circumstances surrounding her death. His post reads;
”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 ”
