Nollywood actor, Prince Eke has berated his colleague, Jerry Amilo for posting a video of Junior Pope’s corpse on his official Facebook page.

News About Nigeria reported that Pope was confirmed dead on Wednesday night after several attempts to resuscitate him failed.

The actor, along with other crew members, drowned in Anam River in Anambra state on their way back from the set of a movie produced by Adanma Luke, titled, “Another Side of Life.”

Jerry, who visited the hospital where Pope was confirmed dead, posted a clip of the deceased actor lying in state with cotton wool in his nose.

In the video, Jerry was seen watching Pope’s corpse, together with the national president of Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas.

He said, “Jerry Amilo just posted a video of Junior Pope’s corpse with cotton wools in his nose. Such a very senseless man. I used to respect Jerry Amilo. Jerry Amilo I am disappointed in you, why would you post such a thing? For wetin? Why? For comments, for you to have traffic on your Facebook.
