COVID-19 kills Nollywood actress
Nollywood actress, Sotonye Green, has succumbed to COVID-19.
She became the first person to have been confirmed killed by the deadly virus in Nigeria's movie industry.
The death of the Rivers born actress was made public by her friend, Debby King.
Ms. King said she had taken her to the Yaba Isolation Centre, blaming the Yaba Isolation Centre for killing the budding actress for their ineptitude.
She announced the death on her Instagram page, saying, “Please, help spread the word. Yaba Isolation Centre is a death trap where only the rich and famous are treated after their doctors have been bribed.
“I never thought I would be saying goodbye so soon. Rest in peace my bestie. May God forgive all your sins and accept your soul into paradise in Jesus name…Amen.”
Sotonye Green was a budding actress known by many notable names in the industry.
The Daily Post had earlier reported the death of Nigeria's billionaire, Bolu Akin-Olugbadeto, was due to the deadly virus.
The 61-year-old businessman died on Wednesday at the Paelon COVID Centre, Ikeja, Lagos. Akin-Olugbade was the Aare Onakakanfo of Owu Kingdom.
