Nollywood has started this year again on a sad note as it lost one of its veteran actors, David Ihezie, to the pangs of death Thursday, in Enugu.
The Enugu State based actor, who had starred in several movies, died in his home after protracted illness.
Chairman, Enugu State chapter of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Ofiafulugu Mbaka, confirmed the death of the prolific actor to Vanguard Thursday.
According to Mbaka, “Ihezie’s death is another big loss to the entertainment sector and Nigeria as a whole. I was made to understand that he had been sick before he finally passed on. Obviously, nobody would be happy when somebody dies. It’s shocking and there is nothing anyone can do.”
Ihezie’s corpse has since been deposited at Ifem Medical centre, Enugu.
