Nollywood actor, Frank Dallas, is dead.
He reportedly passed on in his hotel room on Wednesday February 19 while attending a summit in Abia state.
In a statement released by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) and signed by its PRO, Monalisa Chinda-Coker, it was stated that the National President of the Guild, Emeka Rollas, has cancelled all official activities for three days to mourn the late actor.
The statement read: “With heart full of sorrow, we announce the sudden death of the immediate past National PRO of AGN, Frank Dallas Ebulukwu.
“The National President of AGN, Ejezie Emeka Rollas, has declared three days of mourning and prayers accross all State Chapters including FCT Abuja.
“In view of this, all official activities of the Guild at all levels are hereby cancelled for three days.
“State Chapter Chairmen are instructed to open condolence register in his honour from Monday, 24/02/2020.
“Monthly meeting for February is dedicated to mourning and prayers. We shall be guided accordingly while we await further directives and burial arrangements from the family. May his gentle Soul rest in peace.”
Popularly teased as the “Adedibu of AGN” in Nollywood circles, Dallas hailed from Ohafia in Abia State.
He lost the AGN National PRO position to Monalisa Chinda-Coker in an election held late last year.
Dallas started his acting career in the early 90s and has featured in movies such as ‘Black Maria’, ‘Agony Of A Mother,’ ‘A Night To Remember,’ ‘Emotional Pain’, among others.
