Junior Pope: filmmaker Adanma Luke surrenders to police after boat mishap

Adanma Luke, the producer of the upcoming movie in which the late actor Junior Pope was supposed to be featured, has surrendered to the police.

Pope, the actor, died on Wednesday after he fell into the River Niger in Asaba, Delta state on his way to a movie location.

The film star was in the company of some other actors and crew members when the incident occurred.

On Friday, Tochukwu Ikenga, the Anambra police spokesperson, told newsmen that Luke was not arrested but submitted herself to the law enforcement agency.

Ikenga added that the two boat drivers were also in custody amid an investigation into Pope’s death.

“She was not arrested, she came by herself, and her statement was obtained. We also have in custody the two boat drivers and interrogation is still ongoing,” he said.

“Early this morning, we have recovered the other three missing bodies. Further details shall be communicated please.”

The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) earlier suspended all movies involving riverine locations, following the death of Pope.

Emeka Rollas, the president of the AGN, also warned filmmakers not to work with Luke “until further notice”.

Tochukwu Okafor, the actor fondly called TC Virus who is a survivor of the boat accident, recently opened up about how he escaped the mishap that claimed the life of Pope.
