After battling stroke for several years, popular actor Peter Bunor has died. He lost the battle with stroke on Friday, May 1.
Bunor had been down with the ailment since 2013.
His son, Peter Bunor Jr, who is also an actor, took to Facebook to announce the passing on of his dad.
“In the early hours of today, (May 1) my father, friend, teacher, confidant passed on.” he wrote
Peter Bunor had been done with stroke for some time and complained for years, accusing his colleagues, even the ones he mentored in the industry, of abandoning him after he fell ill.
“Since this thing happened there has been no single actor that called me to ask about my condition. It is a shame on their part. Would they say they don’t know that I am sick? ‘I had a stroke and that was the end of it,” he had told Vanguard in 2013.
That has been the lot of many Nollywood stars who often abandoned once they become ill and indisposed.
May the gentle soul of Bunor rest in peace.
