Recently, Legit.ng reported the death of pioneer filmmaker Eddie Ugbomah. The veteran act who passed away at age 78 was indeed one of Nollywood's greatest.
The death of the great man has stirred a lot of emotions in the hearts of Nigerians especially at such a time like this. Given the fact that he was due to have a surgery the Monday before he died, many of them could not come to grasp with the fact that the pioneer filmmaker has left the world already.
Upon the realisation that Eddie was really gone for good, many Nigerians began to mourn him and react to his death in emotional ways. Comments flowed in on Twitter just as on other social media platforms.
Apart from the Nigerian populace, government agents and authorities could not help but also react to Eddie's death.
Steve Ayorinde, the honourable commissioner for tourism, arts and culture in Lagos state, mourned the veteran filmmaker in a very touching way.
See the post below:
"We didn't lose him. He's only gone to rest eternally with his Maker. His films - His legacy, will remain with us forever. Rest in peace veteran pioneer filmmaker Chief Eddy Ugbomah."
