The Enugu State governor, Mr. Peter Mbah has described the death of the Nollywood’s actor, Obumneme Odonwodo, popularly known as Junior Pope as heart wrenching just as he ordered an opening of a condolence register for Nigerians to pay their glowing tributes to him.

A statement by the Commissioner for Information and Communication, Aka Eze Aka, said the condolence register would be opened at the Conference Hall of the Ministry of Information and Communication, State Secretariat, Enugu effective Monday, April 15, 2024.

“Indeed, the death of Jnr. Pope came at a time Enugu state is working so hard to develop the creative potentials of its youths for self-reliance, as employers of labour and export of their talents outside the shores of Nigeria.

“Governor Mbah expresses deep grief that the late star and other young, talented Nigerians could lose their lives in such an unfortunate circumstance.

“The governor, therefore, commiserates with the bereaved families, Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), and the entire Nollywood industry over the painful loss of their members in boat accident.

“Meanwhile, those who may not get to the office of the Honourable Commissioner for Information and Communication, may use the following email address to express their condolences,” the Commissioner said.

He promised that the state would work in concert with the family to ensure a befitting burial for the late movie icon.
