Osita Iheme


It looks like the Nigerian Movie Industry, Nollywood has been earmarked for visitations by the angel of death. One of Nollywood's topmost and foremost Director's Ndubuisi Okoh passed on this morning in his Aba, Abia State residence.
The amiable but reclusive director of such movies as IDENTITY, LOST KINGDOM, MYSTERIOUS
 and a myraid Nollywood movies gave up the ghost this morning. Details of his passing are still sketchy but from what we have been able to gather, Ndubuisi who held sway in the industry in the mid 90's and early 2000's suffered a massive stroke three years ago, an incident that stopped him from working since then, He had been recuperating until six months ago when he returned to directing.

Industry insiders are still shocked at the development. Owerri based Director Amayo Uzo Philips(AKI and Paw- Paw) said,
 " I am shocked to hear of his death. He has waded through his  worst times only to die now that he is bouncing back to work. As it stands this is the first time we are losing a Core Director and i can tell you that the Director's Guild of Nigeria has lost one of her best."
