‘I have the permission of the Chair of the Chief Eddie Ugbomah Medical Fund Committee Alhaji Adedayo Thomas (DG, NFVCB) to break the news of the passage into eternity of the Veteran Filmmaker Chief Eddie Ugbomah, OON.

“The veteran filmmaker died an hour ago at the hospital where he was scheduled to undergo a surgery on Monday.

“Sad..but we totally submit to the Almighty,” the message reads.

Recall that the man had sought help for treatment abroad to no avail. Last month, he was reported to have cried out for help  from his sick bed.

In a Facebook post, Ugbomah wrote that he was still in need of urgent medical treatment.

He called on the nation’s attention to his frail health in October 2018 with revelations that he was suffering from high blood pressure and complications in his nerves.
