The remains of upcoming Nollywood actor, Clems Onyeka, who was fatally hit by a bullet have been taken to a mortuary this evening. The 37-year-old actor was shot along Summit Express, Asaba, Delta State while the police and armed robbers who attacked a new generation bank were engaged in a fierce gunfight.
He died on the spot.
According to a report from the Vanguard, Onyeka, who recently won the Best Upcoming Actor award requested for an interview to celebrate his success. He reportedly joked with the newspaper entertainment editor saying, “When will you write something about me, is it when I am dead?”
It’s such a tragic turn of events that Onyeka died weeks after this.
Onyeka, known for his movie, Sorrowful kingdom, had just concluded work on another one; Widow’s Testimony.
Condolence messages have been pouring onto his Facebook page.
May his soul rest in peace.
