According to TNS, the actor died yesterday at his Lagos residence from injuries he sustained during a motorcycle accident.
If you’re a fan of the Yoruba arm of Nollywood, then the name Ajigijaga would definitely not be new to you, as he has starred in quite a number of films since his acting career began in 1981.
Confirming the news, President of the Golden Movies Ambassadors (a body to which the late actor belonged), Saidi Balogun said, “Ajigijaga’s death is a big loss to the movie industry, especially to members of The Golden Movie Ambassadors. Just last week, he called me to explain why he couldn’t attend our last monthly meeting. I can recall that he mentioned that his absence was due to injuries he sustained in a motorbike accident about two weeks ago. I was shocked this morning to get a call from one of his children that he has passed on. We shall miss his useful contributions to discussions on how to move the movie industry forward and instil discipline and professionalism in our members. May his soul rest in peace.”
Mr. Mufutao Sanni Adio was born in Ogun State, Nigeria in 1955. May the soul of the departed rest in peace.
