As reported earlier popular Nollywood actor Sam Loco Efe passed away today, Sunday, August 7, 2011. He died in Rapport Hotel, Amakohia, Owerri.

According to Segun Arinze, President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) the story goes that Sam Loco Efe had traveled to Owerri to edit a movie ‘Unknown Prophet‘ which was shot in Port-Harcourt. Efe had directed the movie.

On Saturday, August 6, 2011, the 69-year-old veteran had told his crew to grab some sleep after a long day of work, they were meant to continue the following day. The next day (today), the crew waited for him to continue work but after sometime decided to go wake him up from his hotel room. Upon getting there, they heard no response after repeated knocks on the door. They were forced to open the locked door to gain entry only to find the actor dead.

His death was confirmed by an officer from the Nigerian Police Force and a doctor.

The News was also confirmed by the National Secretary of the AGN, Chuma Onwudiwe who says upon hearing the Efe’s death, he instructed the Financial Secretary of the AGN Cyril Ibe to proceed to Rapport Hotel. He later confirmed Loco’s death.

A polyglot, actor extraordinaire, father to many of us, an intellectual man of immense artistic stature, we will miss him greatly. The  prayers of all AGN members are with his family at this time‘, Onwudiwe expressed.

We’re told his corpse has since been deposited at Aladinma Mortuary, Owerri.

    WHERE WILL SAM LOCO SPEND ETERNITY? HEAVEN OR HELL?

    WHERE WILL YOU, TOO, SPEND ETERNITY? HEAVEN OR HELL?

    As you “Act” remember, a day of accountability is coming, when we all shall give account of lives to GOD.

    In all you do, do it to the Glory of God. No one knows tomoro.

    Repent today, accept Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour…. tomoro may be too late… tomoro may even never ever come…

    How long more, will Jesus wait for you?

    God bless you as decide, now you are still alive… “TO TRUELY REST IN PERFECT PEACE IN HEAVEN… only venue where there is perfect peace…. no one can wish you that, no one can make such prayers for you”

    This is ONE ONLY DECISION you take while you alive!

    Will you decide today? Tomoro? Next week? After your next Location? Or next year? The choice is yours…
