The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has stated that it has commenced investigation into the death of veteran Nollywood actor, Don Brymo Uchegbu. According to information from our reliable source, the 56-year-old actor passed away in his sleep on Wednesday night. Actor Mayor Ofoegbu confirmed the news in a post shared on his Facebook page on Thursday.
Sharing the deceased’s picture, Actor Mayor Ofoegbu wrote: “Plan for tomorrow but live for today. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. I wrote those lines on my WhatsApp status yesterday evening. My man, my 5 & 6, Don Brymo Uchegbu, passed away in his sleep. I received the shocking news this morning and had to verify from his family. Chai Don Brymo my manchi. It’s hard to say goodbye. Nnukwu nwa na Enugu ukwu.”
In a statement signed by the AGN National President, Emeka Rollas, the Guild said Don Brymo’s demise has also proven further credence to their incessant clarion calls on members to sign up for the AGN health management (HMO) plans to help put their health in check constantly.
The statement reads; “The Actors Guild of Nigeria was thrown into another state of grief following the sudden demise of Don Brymo who was reported to have slumped on a film set in Rivers State and later passed on. This tragic death came as a rude shock and has thrown the entire Guild into another grieving moment as we mourn his death. I have taken reports from all the actors on the set with him and found out that he didn’t collapse on set as widely speculated.
“While I commiserate with his immediate family, we have commenced preliminary investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death, especially from the hospital where he was rushed to. This has also proven further credence to our incessant clarion calls on members to sign up for the AGN health management (HMO) plans to help put their health in check constantly.
“I and the entire members of the Guild are saddened by this tragic development of a death that could have been possibly avoided if urgent intervention was provided. May Don Brymo’s soul rest in peace and may God comfort all of us left behind to mourn him. We shall keep members abreast with the latest information and updates from the family,” The AGN President Emeka Rollas concluded.
