Nollywood Actress, Ify Onwuemene, Is Dead

The Daily Crucible 

Nollywood actress, Ify Onwuemene, is dead. 

Ify,  known for her role in sitcom ‘Everyday People,’ died of endometrial cancer.

The popular actress, with the support of professional  colleagues  and some kind - hearted Nigerians, courageously fought hard to defeat the life - threatening condition but unfortunately lost the battle.

Her friend  and colleague, Mrs Gloria Anozie-Young, announced the demise of Ify, saying the actress died on Tuesday.

Gloria stated on her facebook page that 
the burial arrangements will be released later by the family.

“With a deep sense of loss but total submission to God Almighty, we regret to announce that Ify Onwuemene has gone to be with the Lord, Gloria wrote on Facebook

“Ify Onwuemene was diagnosed with endometrial cancer, her womb was removed but she has been battling the ailment for many years now. In 2019, even after 8 sessions of chemotherapy, the doctors told her she had reached stage 4.

“However, we are not sure if she was given the wrong diagnosis or being treated with the wrong chemo, because she still felt pains on her upper abdomen and her tummy bloated.

“Ify spent more than 10million naira, being helped with donations by her fellow actors and other Nigerians. A Gofundme account was opened for her but it did not yield much.

“She had to go for draining every two weeks at a cost of 280,000naira but only 3litres of liquid can be removed at a time so that her heart is not affected.

“Ify has finally gone to rest, today 25th May 2021. May her soul rest in perfect peace. Amen."
