Ada Ameh, a Nollywood actress, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to tackle the unrest in the country so she could travel to bury her daughter in peace.
In an emotional-laden video on her Instagram page on Thursday, the movie star revealed that she lost her daughter after surgery in Abuja two days ago.
Ameh, however, said she has been unable to travel to Abuja due to the widespread violence in the country which necessitated the imposition of curfews by several state governors.
In the video clip, the Lagos-based actress enjoined Buhari as well as Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of the state, to address the situation of things.
“Please I just lost my daughter two days ago, Mr President I beg you in the name of God Almighty my daughter died in Abuja after surgery,” she said in a mixture of English and Pidgin.
“Please help me, let me go and bury my daughter in peace, na beg I dey beg make una stop this thing let me go and bury my daughter in peace.”
Ameh, who is well known for her role as ‘Emu’ in ‘The Johnsons’, a TV series, also threatened to go naked to the airport if the democide in the country is not brought under control.
“They should stop the unrest so that l can go and bury her in peace. If not, I’ll go naked to the airport,” she added.
She said it was unfortunate that the country’s leaders have not properly managed the #EndSARS protests after they deployed soldiers against unarmed civilians.

“People are protesting, they’re killing them and sending soldiers. We have Boko Haram to deal with but they won’t deploy soldiers to deal with them,” she said.
“You people should take soldiers away from the streets and stop killing unarmed civilians… wicked souls, God will judge all of you.”
