Gov Akpabio Gives 5million Naira To Sam Loco’s Children


The children of late veteran Nollywood
actor, Sam Loco Efe, who is yet to be buried,
are now five million naira richer courtesy
the Governor of Akwa Ibom State, Godswill
Apkabio.

The gesture was made by the Governor at
the movie premiere of Nollywood actresses
turned producers, Ini Edo and Emem
Insong’s I Will Take My Chances. The event
took place at the Akwa Ibom States banquet
hall on Saturday, September 24.

The event, which saw heavyweights in the
make-believe sector of Nigeria like Richard
Mofe Damijo (RMD), Ramsey Noah,
Genevieve and others in attendance, was
also attended by Gov. Akpabio, who was the
host.

Gov Akpabio made the donation to the
actor’s children in appreciation what the
actor did to the
movie industry and how the comic actor
affected the people with his talent while he
was alive.

This is not the first time the Gov is giving
out money to support entertainers. Recently
in Lagos,
at the Teslim Balogun stadium, where
Nollywood stars played against Music stars
in a novelty
match in honour of the late Lady of songs,
Christy Essien Igbokwe, the Gov made a
similar
gesture.

Sam Loco Efe died some weeks back at his
hotel room, where he was shooting a
movie. He his slated to be buried later this
month.
