Anambra native doctors tie Junior Pope’s death to 20-year-old movie

A Facebook user in a recent post claims that native doctors in Anambra revealed that the river is angry with Junior Pope due to a movie they shot 20 years ago, hence his death in the river.

This post surfaced online hours after the Nollywood actor, Junior Pope, was reported to have died in a drowning incident.

Actor Junior Pope.

In the shared post, the user claimed that the incident involving the actor might have occurred due to their failure to appease the river deity, angering the river.

The statement reads: “According to the ritual performance, the native doctors of Anambra state said that the river is angry with Junior Pope because of the movie he shot 20 years ago titled ‘ARA NWANYI ASABA.”

They said that the river is the ‘ARA NWANYI ASABA,’ and as they shot the movie, the river’s anger has been revealed since they were angry with the filmmakers.”

“Please, if you know you were among those in this movie, it’s better you quit acting and not go near the water.”

Me too, I pray I should not shoot a movie that will make spirits angry, I swear. Spirits don’t forget something, imagine 20 years ago.”

“And because of this, a body has been seized from the river until they bring two cows, male and female. I said something is behind this.”

In reaction to the claim, concerned individuals stormed the comment section of ... to share their thoughts.
