Drug Abuse: AGN Suspends Nollywood Actor, Jerry Williams




The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) has suspended Nollywood actor, Jerry Williams indefinitely due to his involvement with illicit substances.

The National President of AGN, Emeka Rollas, who announced the suspension in a statement, said the AGN has been closely monitoring Williams Jerry’s association with illicit substances since December of the previous year.

Rollas said the situation has escalated to a point where it poses a risk to the safety of other performers on set, stressing that Williams will not be allowed to associate with fellow actors in order to prevent any potential harm.

The statement reads in part; “The Guild has been monitoring his involvement in illicit substances since December last year, until it got out of hand and as it is now, he cannot be allowed to associate with other performers on set due to danger.

“He ought to have been suspended before now. But we decided to allow him go through minor treatments , which he has been defaulting overtimes. But at it stands now, Jerry is a risk not only to himself but also, other actors who might be acting alongside him on set.
