AGN President Discloses Groups’ Intervention on Zack Orji, Mr Ibu, Others

Emeka Rollas, the president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, has expressed dismay over the false rumour of the death of veteran Nollywood actor Zack Orji stating clearly that he is in good health.

“He has survived two brain surgeries, he is in good health, and he is speaking. For somebody to wake up and say that Zack has passed on is inhuman.”

Speaking to Afia TV on Wednesday, Mr Rollas disclosed that that Zack now requires a post-surgery evaluation abroad.

He said, “Because of the internet age, people just want to grow their page and they can spill nonsense, that was why somebody woke up yesterday morning and said Zack has passed on and I quickly reacted.

“Zack is never in a position of seriously needing attention as we speak, if not because of privacy, I would have just connected him on the phone here, you will see him.

“He just needs a post-surgery evaluation abroad, which we are gradually gathering money to send him abroad for that.”

Speaking on deceased colleague, Chief Amaechi Muonagor, he said “Amaechi was deeply diabetic, aknife cannot cut him because he will not heal. I was there to see him in the company of Bob Manuel Udokwu, Chinedu Ikedieze and others and the doctor told us. We started raising money to see if he could be operated on and resuscitate his failing organs. We must have the prognosis from doctors before we go ahead with any plan. Even John Okafor intervened and wanted to fly him abroad but doctors in most hospitals abroad rejected him and said with the prognosis, he couldn’t survive flying.”

Recall that there was a rumour on the death of Zack Orji just a day after the death of another veteran actor Amaechi Muonagor hit the airwaves.

Subsequently, AGN debunked the report stating that the actor who was initially admitted to the Intensive Care Unit of the National Hospital in Abuja was alive.
