The bad news to the Nollywood movies lovers and fans is that veteran actor and comedian Pete Eneh is no more, from now on.
Nollywood was thrown into mourning on Thursday when one of its veteran actors, Pete Eneh passed on.
Eneh’s death was confirmed by the Special Assistant to the Enugu state governor on Media, Afam Okereke, who is also an actor.
Eneh died several days after one of his legs was amputated due to an infection at Park Lane hospital, Enugu. His health reportedly deteriorated after the amputation.
The actor had sustained an injury sometime last year but due to lack of proper care, the injury developed into a serious sore that refused to heal due to his diabetic nature.
He was advised by doctors to amputate the leg to avoid the infection spreading to other parts of his body after three months of seeing no improvement in the hospital.
The leg was eventually amputated on Wednesday, October 24.
Former Chairman of Enugu State chapter of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Mr. Ofiafuluagu Mbaka confirming the news to Vanguard said the actor died around 1pm on Thursday in Enugu.
The deceased actor featured in several films including Heavy Rain, Arrows, By His Grace, Ngozi: Abeg Marry Us, Naomi, The Suitors and Not Your Wealth.
The world’s most advanced tuberculosis vaccine failed to protect babies against the infectious disease, according to a new study in South Africa.
The vaccine, MVA85A, was designed to improve protection from the only existing tuberculosis vaccine, BCG, which is routinely given to newborns.
Though the new vaccine appeared safe, scientists found no proof it prevented tuberculosis, an airborne disease that kills more than 1 million people worldwide every year.
Previous tests of the vaccine in adults had been promising and researchers said the trial provided useful data to inform future studies. There are a dozen other TB vaccines currently being tested.
