Nora Nkiruka Ugo, a Nollywood actress, died on Sunday, January 28, 20018 in Lagos.
It is reported that she was battling an disclosed ailment.
Her death was announced by Ruth Kadiri, a Nollywood actress who penned down an emotional tribute to her late friend and colleague.
She is quoted as writing on social media, “I’m so scared of putting this picture up, not sure if it’s the right thing to do. You were that girl that made my life change. You where that girl that made me laugh a lot you where that girl that I got so mad at. You where that girl that was friend to all. I spoke to you last week.
“You were the strongest sick person I know. I’m hurt by your death. My head still aches. Wish death was a thing that could be undone. I know God will have a new angel that makes him laugh all day and puts a smile on his face. Gone too soon. Rest in peace Nora. And look over all on earth that were genuinely connected to you. #RIPNora”
Another friend of the budding actress, Tina Ugo, wrote on Facebook on Sunday, “A STAR IS GONE. It’s been hard for us all to accept this reality. I’ve been in denial for two days hoping it’s all a dream or that you were playing us all one of your usual Pranks.”
“You were a TRUE FIGHTER, that fought so hard to live, but I guess the pains and discomfort became unbearable for you two days ago so you succumbed to Death.
“Sleep well my SISTER, Nora Nkiruka Ugo, I’ll forever cherish the moments we had.
“WE LOVE YOU,” she ended as she shared photos of the late actress.
The deceased actress acted in movies and TV series such as “Hawkers Vs Hawkers,” “Diary of a Confused Teenager,” Husbands of Lagos,” “Love and Age,” and “Warriors of Satan.”
A visit to the Ms. Ugo’s Facebook page shows messages of grief and disbelief by friends and fans.
