Junior Pope: Peter Obi turns up for late Nollywood actor

Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the recent election, has paid a condolence visit to the family of the late Nollywood actor, Junior Pope. The former Anambra State governor also signed the condolence register during his visit.

Nollywood actor Kenneth Okonkwo, who previously served as the spokesperson for the Labour Party presidential campaign council, shared pictures and videos of the visit on his Instagram page on Saturday afternoon.

In his post, Okonkwo wrote: “HE Peter Obi arrived at the residence of John Paul Odonwodo Junior Pope, to pay his condolences to his family over the sad and untimely departure of their child, brother, husband, and father. He consoled his mother, Mrs. Maria Odonwodo, the widow, Jennifer, and his children.”

Junior Pope tragically passed away on April 10, 2024, alongside three others, after their boat capsized on the Anam River in Anambra State while returning from a film location. He was laid to rest in his hometown, Ukehe, in Nsukka Local Government Area, Enugu State, on Friday.
