Nollywood actor, Jerry Williams has been suspended indefinitely by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) over an abuse of drugs.
The National President of AGN, Mr Emeka Rollas made the announcement in a statement. He disclosed that the association have been monitoring the steps of Jerry Williams since December and his use of drugs got out of hand.
Rollas further clarifies that Jerry Williams cannot be permitted to associate with fellow performers on set, as his presence poses a potential risk to the safety and well-being of others.
The statement reads;
“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.“
