Nollywood actor, Sam Loco Efe, is dead
| August 09, 2011
Sam Loco Efe, a popular Nollywood actor is dead. He died in his hotel room in Owerri, Imo state shortly after returning from location of a film that he was directing titled âUnknown Prophetâ. His body was discovered in his hotel room after he did not show up the next day. The day before he had asked the cast and crew to return to their hotel rooms and return the next day to continue shooting the film. But his colleagues got worried when he didnât show up for breakfast and when they forced the door of his room open, they discovered his body on the bed. The Imo State Commissioner of Police confirmed his death saying, "It is true. He died in Rapour Hotel in Owerri. We are in the process of going to mortuary now. We heard he had been sick for one week and he had just been discharged. He died last night. We will give you other details later.â Sam Loco Efe was from Benin City in Edo State and spoke Igbo, Yoruba and Hausa fluently. He had been in the Nigerian theater scene for over four decades and had performed in several movies and plays on stage and on television. He was part of the Nigerian troupe at FESTAC 77, when Nigeria hosted the world in arts and culture at the National Theatre, Iganmu, Lagos. His death comes on the heels of other recent and shocking deaths of entertainers in Nigeria. About one month ago, Christy Essien-Igbokwe, a popular Nigerian actress and singer died and just a few months before that, another veteran actor, Ashley Nwosu, passed away.
