Had I known Muna Obiekwe was ill, I would die to save him – Ibinabo Fiberesima

Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) president, Ibinabo Fiberesima wishes she could take back the hands of time and die in place of the late Muna Obiekwe.

While speaking  during his candlelight service in Lagos last week,  she cried out her heart and slammed those criticizing the AGN for abandoning the late actor at the time of need.

She said “Think first before you write. The man was married, he had a wife and children. When you go about writing rubbish about the dead, it will haunt you. If you don’t know the truth about something, don’t spread
it. It’s even worse if you are an AGN member. Everyone is sad because
of his death.

If I had known, being the kind of person I am, I would die
to save Muna. I didn’t know, most of us never knew and Muna begged the
few people who knew not to tell anyone. He had his reasons and let us
respect it. Let’s stop writing rubbish . He drank alcohol, does that
make you better than him? Let us respect Muna, he’s no longer with us.
Mind your business.

All those throwing daggers at AGN, dumping Muna and not taking care
of him. How many of you are registered and validated AGN members. But
when something goes wrong, you’ll remember AGN. This AGN is a guild, not
a hospital. We are worried about your welfare, but if you’re not
registered with us, we cannot help you. We have helped people we don’t
even know because they came to us. If you need help, let us know.

There’s also a publication going round about another ailing actor, Prince
James Uche. My heart is broken because we have gone the length to help
him, so I’m shocked to hear that we have abandoned yet another actor. We
don’t abandon actors. We have paid his rent for three years now, we
have paid his hospital bills and put him on a health plan. We have taken
him to the best hospitals for medical tests.
I’m really shocked at the stories flying around.

If you don’t know the
truth about something, you ask. I know the kind of heart God has given
me and I have God’s grace upon me. So no matter what you do to destroy
me, I can’t be destroyed. I love Muna and if I could help him, I would
if I had known about his ailment. But God knows why this has happened”
