It has been revealed that Nollywood actress, Chinedu Bernard didn’t die a natural death.
President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas made the revelation after being queried on the circumstances that led to the death of the actress.
According to him, someone killed her.
We had reported that the late actress was said to have slumped and died while cleaning the Chapel of St. Leo the Great Catholic Church located inside Federal Housing area in Enugu State.
Those on ground when she slumped including a priest identified as Rev Fr Uchendu Chukwuma immediately took the actress to the hospital but she was confirmed dead at the hospital.
Reacting to her death on his Instagram page, the AGN president, queried the circumstances that led to the actress’s death, adding that an autopsy must be carried out to ascertain the cause of her death.
His post read: “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 parishioner friends? 3. Who are Chinedu’s friends in Enugu where she is practising her craft? So it is 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. “
The AGN President further admonished actors yet to register under the guild to do so, adding that it is gross irresponsibility not to be up to date with the guild.
“Let me use this medium to address Actors. No man is an island it is gross irresponsibility for any actor to be in an industry such as ours without being up to date with the Actors Guild of Nigeria,” he said.
