Veteran Nollywood actor, Victor Decker, is dead.
The 72 years old actor was found dead in his apartment on Monday February 15, 2021.
As per media reports, Decker’s neighbours found his dead body on a couch in his apartment.
Confirming his death, Mayor of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Abuja, Jesse Nazareth, said, “Yes, Victor Decker is dead. I am in the mortuary where they want to embalm him. I am not aware of the cause of his death. I just got a call that his neighbours did not see him for days so they got concerned.
“They went to his house, knocked on his door but got no response so they had to break down the door. That was when they saw him sitting on his chair lifeless.”
She added that several rejected his dead body because it was already smelling.
“He was already smelling as he was decomposing. I rushed down there to arrange the necessary things.
“I had to obtain a police report and cars to convey him to a hospital. I took him to several hospitals but they rejected him because his body was already decomposing. At about 3 am this morning, we were referred to a private hospital in Bwari, Abuja, where they accepted his body. This morning, they are embalming his body but they need to first reduce its size as he has swollen.”
As of time of filing this report, the cause of his death is yet unknown and his remains have been moved to the mortuary.
Late Decker starred in films like Double Strings, If I am President and Lotanna.
May his soul rest in peace, Amen.
