Nollywood actress and President of Actors Guild of Nigeria(AGN), Ibinabo Fiberesima has said that AGN was not able to support Muna Obiekwe before his tragic demise because the late actor kept his kidney problem to himself.

Ibinabo made the disclosure during the candlelight service held in honour of the actor in Lagos where she dismissed rumour making the rounds that AGN abandoned Muna to his fate when he fell sick.

She said, “Think first before you write. The man was married, he had a wife and children. When you go about writing rubbish about the dead, it will haunt you. If you don’t know the truth about something, don’t spread it.

“It’s even worse if you are an AGN member. Everyone is sad because of his death. If I had known, being the kind of person I am, I would die to save Muna. I didn’t know, most of us never knew and Muna begged the few people who knew not to tell anyone. He had his reasons and let us respect it. Let’s stop writing rubbish – He drank alcohol, does that make you better than him? Let us respect Muna, he’s no longer with us. Mind your business.”

Ibinabo also shot down another rumour alleging that the body has abandoned ailing actor, Prince James Uche(pictured right).Prince-James-Uche

She explained, “There’s also a publication going round about another ailing actor, Prince James Uche. My heart is broken because we have gone the length to help him, so I’m shocked to hear that we have abandoned yet another actor. We don’t abandon actors.

“We have paid his rent for three years now, we have paid his hospital bills and put him on a health plan. We have taken him to the best hospitals for medical tests. I’m really shocked at the stories flying around. If you don’t know the truth about something, you ask. I know the kind of heart God has given me and I have God’s grace upon me. So no matter what you do to destroy me, I can’t be destroyed. I love Muna and if I could help him, I would if I had known about his ailment. But God knows why this has happened.”
