Tochukwu, a renowned Nigerian film actor also known as TC Virus, has revealed that he was targeted for arrest by the film director, Adanma Luke, following a tragic boat accident that claimed the life of his fellow actor, Junior Pope.

According to TC Virus, the boat operator alleged that he was responsible for the mishap that led to Pope’s untimely demise.

During their return from a filming location in Anambra, Pope and a few others tragically lost their lives in the boat accident. While many perished, TC Virus managed to survive by clinging onto a rope after the incident.

However, TC Virus explained that the boat operator informed Adanma Luke that he had obstructed his view by standing up during the journey.

In an Instagram Live session, TC Virus shared his side of the story.

“Adanma Luke asked the Marine police to arrest me because the boat operator was lying that I stood up during the trip so he could not see the oncoming boat.

“As slim as I am, I stood in front of the boat and you can’t see, are you okay? You who’s a pilot.”

Earlier reports from SaharaReporters confirmed the death of Junior Pope, who drowned while filming a movie titled “The Other Side Of Life” produced by Adamma Luke during an attempt to cross the River Niger.

Emeka Rollas, the National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), officially announced Jr Pope’s demise in an Instagram post on Thursday morning.

The 39-year-old actor, along with others, tragically drowned in the River Niger in Delta State while returning from a movie shoot location in a boat.

In response to the heartbreaking incident, Stanley, who was present during the tragedy and assisted in rushing Junior Pope to the hospital in Asaba, the capital of Delta State, has called for the immediate arrest of the producer and the boat driver, who reportedly survived.

In a statement on his Instagram page on Thursday, Stanley criticized Nollywood producers, labeling them as the worst in the entertainment industry, particularly those in Asabawood.

He pointed out their tendency to underpay and mistreat movie cast and crew, warning that actors who voice their concerns on set 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.”
