The Chairman, Abuja chapter of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Mr Agility Onwura, on Sunday, expressed sadness over the death of veteran Nollywood actor, Olumide Bakare.
Bakare passed on in the early hours of Saturday at 65 due to respiratory disorder.
Onwura said that Bakare’s demise was a big loss to the entertainment industry and Nollywood in particular.
He said, “we received the news of his death with sadness. He died when the wealth of his experience and contribution was most needed in the industry. However, nobody can question God since death is a debt everyone will have to pay some day.”
The AGN boss added that solace should be drawn from the fact that the late artiste lived a fulfilled life as a professional and role model to many.
He prayed that God would grant the family of the late icon the fortitude to bear the loss, while urging them to draw inspirations from his life.
