The suspension of Nollywood actor Jerry Williams over “involvement in illicit substances” generated some debate online as his fans felt bad about the conduct of their beloved. Others have questioned the sincerity of the suspension statement.

According to a statement released by the President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), Emeka Rollas:  “The Guild has been monitoring his involvement in illicit substances since December last year, until it got out of hand and as it is now, he cannot be allowed to associate with other performers on set due to danger.

“He ought to have been suspended before now. But we decided to allow him go through minor treatments, which he has been defaulting overtimes. But at it stands now, Jerry is a risk not only to himself but also, other actors who might be acting alongside him on set.

“We, therefore, have decided to suspend him indefinitely until he gets a clean bill of health from a medical practitioner or a professional that handles drugs abuse.”

The actor who rose to fame after starring in the hit film “The Chosen King” has yet to release a statement regarding the suspension, giving people more reasons to believe that he has been involved with illicit substances as accused.

People have questioned the severity of the punishment, but the AGN might not be out of place with their decision owing to the fact that he does not only pose a threat to himself but also to other actors and crew members, as mentioned in their statement.
