Nigerian Tribune reports that veteran Nollywood actor Olumide Bakare has died.

It said that his death, which took place in the early hours of Saturday, was confirmed by his personal assistant, who was with him. Bakare has been sick for over a year and reports say, aside suffering low blood flow into the heart, there were also indications of a lung-related disease.

The death was also confirmed by actor Saidi Balogun.

“Yes, it is true Olumide Bakare is dead. He died on his way to his hospital. When I called his number, his personal assistant picked his phone and told me he was dead. That’s how much I can say for now,” Balogun told Tribune on the telephone.

      Films he acted in will continue to be shown. Hardly a week pass by I dont see Muna in a film then I will remember what the Bible say that death is the last enemy. So painful.

    Shocking….sometimes I feel it’s almost impossible for certain people to die but ,anything can happen at any freaking time. He was a good man.
    N.B living a good and worthy life cannot be overemphasised.

    This is sad, but who are we to query God? May his soul rest in peace. May the Lord comfort and console the family he left behind.

    Am I the only one with this thought? Why are many good people dying but Babangida (IBB)- the REAL SATAN of Nigeria- has refused to die?
