A popular Nollywood actress, Esther Nwachukwu, has reportedly died after she committed suicide.
She was said to have drank poison.
The news of her demise was shared on her Instagram story on Friday evening, which was later deleted.
The post urged her followers to pray for her soul and her mother who is currently sick.
A chat shared by an Instagram blog with the actress’s cousin, Ifeoma Nwachukwu, who has access to the deceased IG account confirmed the news of her death.
In the chat, Ifeoma was asked if she was just clout-chasing with Nwachukwu’s death. And she responded that she cannot joke with death and that the actress died as a result of the poison she drank.
Checks on her Instagram page revealed that Nwachukwu last visited her social media on August 20th.
Nwachukwu was known for her controversial lifestyle.
She once inked a tattoo of Junior Pope’s name on her body.
She accused the actor of sleeping with her. She also dragged the actor’s wife, Jennifer Awele, on social media, after she blocked her for tattooing her husband’s name on her body.
