Popular Nollywood Actor To Be Laid To Rest Today, See Burial Arrangement

Benjamin Nwani Okolo, a well-known Nigerian star, is finally being laid to rest.


Recall that the talented actor, who appeared in many films that wowed Nigerians, passed away on February 21, 2021, at the age of 83, after a long battle with an illness.

He was a onetime director at the University of Nigeria teaching hospital, where he worked to the best of his capacity while he was still alive, in addition to being an actor.


His departure was particularly painful for the Nollywood industry and Nigerians, who loved to be amused by the elderly jokes he used to tell in his films and the memories he left behind.

He leaves behind a wife, children, family, and friends. On Monday, April 5th, 2021, he will be laid to rest at his compound in Isioha-Odume, Eziama Ogbaku, Enugu county. You can even say something positive about him if he ever made you laugh.
