Troubled nollywood actor Ernest Asuzu is yet to overcome his insanity, stroke and financial problems as he was caught begging for money early in the week.

The Imo-State born actor has disappeared from the screen due to troubled life caused by mental illness, which later led to stroke.

On Sunday, a reporter with Daily Independent caught the mentally disturbed actor begging at popular consumer goods retail outlet, Shoprite located at Surulere area of Lagos State.

Wearing a Manchester United jersey on a blue jean pants and bathroom slippers, Azuzu who was seen limping on his right leg was practically begging shoppers for money to eat!

The eccentric actor confided in the reporter that the president of Actors Guild, Ibinabo Fiberesima and some others are aware of his condition but have refused to come to his aid.

He said he now depends on good spirited Nigerians for survival.
