Nollywood actor, Obinna Nwafor, otherwise known in the movie industry as Saint Obi, has passed away.
This newspaper gathered that the ailing actor died about a week ago but the family chose not to announce his death for reasons yet to be ascertained.
The actor is said to have battled an undisclosed ailment for some time and was reported to have relocated to Jos, the Plateau State capital for further treatment of the illness that had kept him in and out of the hospital for over two years.
It could not be confirmed why some of his colleagues as well have refused to speak about Obi’s death but it was gathered that decision to keep sealed lips was informed by the family’s decision to keep his death away from the public for now.
It was also gathered that Obi was spotted being transported to the hospital before his death.
He was said to have died last week Monday and his body was deposited at the morgue at Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH).
Saint Obi was the favorite of many home video lovers in late 90s and early 2000 before he suddenly stopped appearing in movies. He had featured in over 100 movies before his demise.
