In a tragic turn of events, Abigail Frederick, the make-up artist who tragically lost her life in a boat crash along with actor Jnr Pope and other crew members at Anam River, has been laid to rest.

Moses Ekor has reported on Facebook that due to financial constraints, Abigail’s father was unable to perform the necessary rituals to bring her body back home to Akwa Ibom State.

Moses Ekor expressed his concern and disappointment, labeling the riverbank burial as disgraceful.

He thanked the generous individuals who contributed funds for Abigail’s parents to travel from Akwa Ibom to Asaba.

He wrote:

“Abigail Fredrick

I’m Too Sad I Wish We Could Raised More! Burring Her At The River Bank This Night Is A Shame To Me.”

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.”
