Muna Obiekwe's Death: 'His Colleagues Did not Help Him' - Actress Laments

Muna Obiekwe's Death: 'His Colleagues Did not Help Him' - Actress Laments

I am still shocked to my marrow to learn of Nollywood veteran actors’ death- Muna Obiekwe. Many did not even know he was sick. I for one did not know that he was down with kidney disease.
Well, the sad news is that he died on Sunday, January 18, at around 4:15 in an undisclosed hospital in Lagos after battling with the deadly disease.
He was said to have been rushed to the hospital after collapsing at home, but was confirmed dead on reaching the hospital.
Muna Obiekwe was said to have needed money for his treatment, and a fellow colleague of his, Nollywood actress Ify Okeke have gone on instagram to accuse Muna’s colleagues in the movie industry who knew about his ailment of not reaching out to him.
She wrote-

"I truly hate to be a harbinger of bad news but I want to confirm that Muna Obiekwe is dead! And am so angry! Yes not just because we lost another great talent but because in this industry we are not our brothers keeper. Yes, Muna might have wanted or lived a private life but people knew he was sick, people knew his health condition and yet what did they do? Some tried but if they had cried out to the world Muna might have gotten help. We are just colleagues No real friends! Rest In Peace Muna.

The painful thing is that Muna is gone. Whatever anybody could have done and did not do is no longer important as nothing can bring him back. Above picture is him on dialysis.
We will miss you Muna. Rest in the lord!
