Movie producer Stanley Nwoke is demanding the immediate arrest of his colleague Adamma Luke in connection with the tragic death of Nollywood actor John Paul Odonwodo, also known as Junior Pope.

The 39-year-old actor and others drowned in the Delta State area of the River Niger while returning from a movie shoot on a boat.

The actor was confirmed dead on Wednesday night, shortly after leaving the set of the film “The Other Side Of Life” produced by Adamma Luke.

In response to the actor’s death, Nwoke took to Instagram to call for the arrest of the producer and the boat driver, who survived.

He criticized Nollywood producers as the worst in the Nigerian entertainment industry, claiming there is a lack of love in the movie business.

Nwoke also mentioned that producers often do not invest enough in the cast and crew, and actors who complain are quickly blacklisted.

He wrote, “Arrest the producer. Arrest the boat driver. Nollywood producers are the worst part of producers in the entertainment. They like managing funds on cast and crew.

“If you complain too much on set, you will be blacklisted immediately. Nollywood; no love for one another, especially Asabawood.”
