The Late Amaka Igwe’s husband, Mr Charles Igwe, has revealed that the Late film-maker died as a result of the ongoing Doctor’s strike in Enugu! He revealed this while receiving delegates from the National Executive of the National Association of Nigerian Theatre Arts Practitioners (NANTAP) who paid him a condolence visit. Hear him:
“We were in Enugu preparing for her new soap, and Amaka was taking some of the people through acting when she had an asthma attack. After using her inhaler without success, she was taken to a nearby hospital, but we were told that the doctor was not around.
We then went to the teaching hospital in Enugu, where we were again told that the Doctors were on strike. It was while we were taking her to another hospital that she died.”
