Rich Oganiru, a veteran Nollywood actor, has died after battling with illness for some months.
It was gathered that Oganiru passed away on Tuesday, August 10, 2021.
GLAMSQUADMAGAZINE recalls that barely three weeks ago, a video of Rich Oganiru lying in his sickbed and begging for financial assistance was shared online.
“Please, everyone should reach out before he dies,” the caption on the post reads.
Sadly, Rich didn’t survive the ailment as it has reportedly claimed his life, and one of his friends has announced his death on Facebook.
Sometime in 2012, the Nollywood actor, who starred in numerous movies, was accused of allegedly murdering his wife. He was immediately incarcerated for the death of his wife, and it’s rather unfortunate that he has finally joined her on the other side of life.
According to news reports at the time, Oganiru was arrested following a petition by family and relations of his late wife who claimed that she was poisoned by the actor so that he could acquire her wealth.
Oganiru has since maintained his innocence and said on numerous occasions that he never killed his multimillionaire wife.
