One week after the demise of popular Nigerian actor, Rich Oganiru, the Nigeria movie industry has lost another popular Nollywood actress, Doris Chima who has died after a long-fought battle with cancer.
Chima was a founding member of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) and a former vice-chairperson of the Lagos branch of AGN.
From reports, Chima was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020 and had to undergo surgery to prevent the further spread of cancer in the same year.
Breaking the sad news, Emeka Rising Ibe, the Lagos chairman of the AGN said he is still in shock over the sad incident as Chima was a dedicated member and good woman.
He said: “She called me last week and pleaded not to be removed from the verification exercise I had embarked on to ascertain true members of the guild in Lagos.
“Yesterday morning, I got a call that she was dead. Though I am yet to visit the family but it is a great loss for us. I pray for the repose of her soul.”
