Junior Pope: Survivor recounts actor’s last minutes, reveals cause of boat accident [VIDEO]


TC, one of the survivors of the boat mishap that killed Nollywood actor, Pope Obumneme Odonwodo, popularly known as Junior Pope, has recounted his last minutes before the incident.

TC disclosed that lack of experience on the part of the person sailing the boat led to the accident.

Four actors, including Junior Pope, died when their boat capsized on the Anam River in Anambra State while returning from a movie location.

The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, confirmed Junior Pope’s death on Thursday and stated that three other corpses are yet to be found.

However, speaking during an Instagram Live session, TC said: “Before I entered the boat, the first thing Junior Pope asked me was ‘What I’m I doing?’ And I said I was observing the water people. I can’t pass without sharing something. I have given them Fanta, so I don’t want anything bad to happen to me. Junior Pope agreed.

“While we were going, the boat guy was wearing an earpiece, and Junior Pope was doing a video, I saw a small canoe with fishermen in front and due to his lack of experience, he drove right into the last point of the canoe and we somersaulted.”
