Nollywood actress, Ify Onwuemene, is dead.

The late actress, popular for her role in the sitcom ‘Everyday People’, died on Tuesday after battling with endometrial cancer, according to her friend and colleague, Gloria Anozie-Young.

Mrs Young wrote on Facebook: “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.

“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 eight 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 10 million 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.”

She said burial arrangements would be released by the family soon.

My Sister from another womb. RIP!
May your soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace ...amen.
