Drama As Community And Family Members Allegedly Battle Over Actor, Junior Pope’s Body

Following the untimely death of beloved Nollywood star actor, Junior Pope, his family members and the community where he died are currently battling for his body.

According to unconfirmed reports, some people in the community are insisting that the actor must be buried in the river because they believe it is necessary for his children and the community’s well-being. If not, there would be serious spiritual consequences and heavy repercussions.

The community went as far as demanding his boy from the doctor, who refused and locked him in a private room. His family, on their part, didn’t agree and wouldn’t give up his body.

It was also learned that another group of people is saying the family should take the body to a specific shrine before 2 AM, where a certain herbalist in charge of the river will supposedly bring him back to life.

Emeka Rollas, the AGN president, and some Nollywood actors are currently pushing for his body to be taken to the shrine.
