Nigerian actor, Enebeli Elebuwa has passed away after battling with complications from a stroke.
Elebuwa, 66, died Wednesday after losing his one-year battle with stroke at the Asian Institute of Medical Sciences, Faridabad Haryana, New Delhi, India.
The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Elebuwa had been at the hospital for the past few months, courtesy of the Delta State Government, which has an actor, Richard Mofe-Damijo, as its commissioner for culture.
The veteran actor was stricken with stroke last year and has sought healing from numerous sources, including churches, where one Pastor Sign Fireman of the Perfect Christian Ministry, Surulere, claimed to have healed him in May this year.
But the actor later debunked those claims by saying: “If he claims that he has healed me, I leave everything to God. I was in his church and he prayed for me, but my condition did not improve.”
He then continued with his treatment in an Abuja hospital before being flown to India by the Delta State Government. Reports and pictures from India had all been positive until his death on Tuesday night.
This comes barely one month after another Nollywood actor Peter Eneh died several days after one of his legs was amputated due to an infection at Park Lane hospital.
