The Nigerian movie industry, Nollywood, has again lost one of its famous stars, Geraldine Ekeocha.
Geraldine, who acted in about 80 Nollywood movies, died on the early hours of Sunday 4th of September 2011 at the University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, UNTH, Ituku Ozalla near Enugu.
She died of cancer in the liver.
Mrs Sarah Duru, a daughter of the deceased said, “It is very unfortunate that a thing like this happened to my mum. She had an operation in June this year but her condition started changing and we rushed her to UNTH. The doctor confirmed that the cancer had spread and she gave up on Sunday.”
She said the family was planning the burial of the deceased to begin as soon as possible.
