The late Sam Loco Efe died apparently sitting on his seat in a hotel room of causes suspected to be asthma. He was found dead on a Sunday morning of that fateful day with ventolin inhalers beside him in the hotel room where he lodged.
The room was forced open after he failed to come down after retiring the previous night.
Contrary to reports that he was on location in Owerri, Imo State, our source reveal, that he was actually in Owerri editing a yet untitled film produced by Bayelsa State born Favour Ogosi.
Former Vice President, Actors Guild of Nigeria (South -East) and a close confidant of the deceased, Mr Steve Eboh, told reporters those events that led to the actor’s death.
He said: “On the night before his demise, he had, as usual, exchanged banter and jokes with friends and colleagues till about 11p.m. before retiring to his room. “But the next morning when he didn’t come down for breakfast, worried colleagues went knocking on his door.
Of course, they knew he was inside. And when no response came, they called me. I then advised that the hotel contact the police.
And when the room was eventually opened, the cold body of Sam was found on a seat in the room. “And on the table and the floor, the police were alleged to have found a cannister or two of ventolin inhalers.” Unfulfilled Dream Efe died without fulfilling the dream of taking a deserved rest at his Abakaliki, Ebonyi State farm house, Eboh said yesterday.
“Because I was nominated for the City People Awards and couldn’t go to see him in Owerri, he told me he would first stop over at Yenagoa and on today travel to his farm in Abakaliki, Ebonyi to wait for me. He said he was going to the farm house to rest and take a break from the rigours of film shooting and editing. That never happened because he died the next morning.”
Former President Goodluck Jonathan and ex- Governor of lagos State Babatunde Fashola were among government officials who extended condolences to the family of the late actor.
Recall that ex-President Jonathan described the late actor as an accomplished artiste whose works helped to raise the dignity and style of the industry.
Fashola on his part praised him for his unwavering commitment to his chosen profession despite the challenges he met.
