Veteran Nollywood actress Doris Chima has passed on, Newspremises reports.
Chima died after a long battle with breast cancer, she was reportedly diagnosed with the ailment in 2020 and her breast was cut off to prevent further damage.
Emeka Rising Ibe, chairman of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Lagos state chapter, who confirmed her demise said, noted that, he is still in shock over the sad incident as Chima was a dedicated member and good woman.
In his word:
“She called me last week and pleaded due to ill health not to remove her from the verification exercise I 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.”
May her soul rest in peace and may God grant the bereaved family the fortitude to bare the irreplaceable loss.
