A popular Nigerian actor and ex-chairman Board of Trustees of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Prince Ifeanyi Dike, is dead.

Confirming the sad incident, President Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas, said that Dike died on Friday in Lagos after a brief illness.

Naija News reports that this coming few hours after the death of Nollywood veteran actor, Victor Olaotan is dead.

The talented Nollywood actor was known for his lead character in the popular movie series, Tinsel.

The development was confirmed by the spokesman of the late veteran actor, Demola Sanyaolu.

Olaotan who turned 69 on February 17 had been battling for his life after suffering a ghastly car accident in October 2016.

Recall that the actor was driving to a movie location when he had the accident around Apple Junction, in Festac, Lagos.

In 2018, billionaire businessman and philanthropist, Femi Otedola donated N30m to the actor.

However, the Nollywood actor did not survive the accident which has kept him bedridden for five years.
