Veteran Nigerian actor, Ernest Asuzu, is dead.

As of the time of filing this report, the cause of death was unknown.

His wife, Jennifer Asuzu, was reported to have fainted after she heard of the death on Tuesday evening. 

The Nollywood actor began his acting career in the 1990s, and became popular after he starred in the 1997 Nollywood classic, ‘Rituals.’

However, his career slowed down when he suffered a stroke in 2015, leaving him speech-impaired and later became bedridden for three years.
