Veteran Nollywood actor Enebeli Elebuwa died in the early hours of Wednesday at the Asian Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS), New Delhi, India.
Elebuwa, 66, had been battling with stroke for over a year and was reported to be responding to treatment in the Indian hospital, where he was being treated until the sad announcement.
Before his death, Enebeli Elebuwa had been battling with an ailment which practically rendered him bedridden. In 2011, he was admitted to St Nicolas Hospital, Yaba, Lagos but was later moved to St Topaz Hospital, Surulere, Lagos where he was reported to have had partial stroke but treatments from these hospitals did not make him be how he used to be as an active actor. In 2012, he was reported to have walked after attending a miracle service at Dr Sign Fireman’s church at Aguda, Surulere. Weeks after, he reportedly claimed that his ‘healing’ at Fireman’s church was fake. This raised controversies over his health. He was said to be receiving treatment at an undisclosed Abuja hospital which Stella Damasus was reportedly footing the bills, and then was later flown to India where he died in the early hours of today.
May his soul rest in the Lord’s bossom.
