A Nollywood Actress, identified as Uduak Akrah, has died, after slipping in her bathroom. Her colleagues who confirmed this on the social media, said she died on Saturday, following injuries sustained from the fatal fall.
“I just heard from someone close to her and her family in Abuja. She suffered complications in the past few months from a nasty fall in the bathroom,” said filmmaker Charles Novia.
The actress who is based in Abuja was said to have been ill from the accident for some time, and was eventually brought to the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH) where she was pronounced dead on arrival.
Described by colleagues as a versatile entertainer both on screen and on stage, Uduak, a graduate of Creative Art from the University of Lagos, was also an event planner and singer.
“Fantastic actress on stage and screen… An Akokite, calm and gentle, may her soul rest perfectly in peace,” said Iyen Agbonifo.
She is known for films like ‘Emotional Crack’ and ‘Bafana Bafana’.
