Veteran Nollywood actor, Victor Olaotan, has reportedly passed away, five years after a career-ending car accident.
According to Mrs Julia Olaotan, he had been battling for his life in a Turkish hospital for almost three years.
Mrs Olaotan said she is grateful that the 69-year-old actor can finally go to rest after suffering for years.
“He has tried. It is not easy to be trapped in your own body for five years. He can finally rest now,” she said.
The late actor was recently flown back to Nigeria, where his condition deteriorated as the family could no longer shoulder his medical expenses abroad.
Olaotan, who is best known for his role as Fred Ade-Williams in the long-running soap opera Tinsel, was driving to a movie set in October 2016 when he had the accident in Lagos, Nigeria.
