Pope died when the boat carrying him and several actors collapsed while crossing the River Niger for a movie shoot.

Following the development, the performers Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has forbidden performers from working with Adanma Luke, the producer of the movie that resulted in the death of the actor and three others.

In an Instagram post, Ini Edo wrote: “Jnr Pope did not have to sacrifice his life for Nollywood to realize the need for a long and much needed regulatory structure that would safeguard an entire production .

“Yes .. every one is a producer now and all are guilty of negligence of some sort.. and this has to stop. This is one sacrifice too many and must count for something … The system has to undergo a total overhaul with practical rules and regulations that caters to everyone in cases of emergencies…. I will never understand why the good ones go so soon.

“Rest on brother … This one cuts really deep.”
