The Nigeria Intervention Movement (NIM), a movement co-chaired by Olisa Agbakoba and Abduljeleel Tafawa Balewa, has mourned the demise of Rachel Oniga, the veteran actress.


The movie star breathed her last at 64 on Friday night with her family later revealing that she died from heart-related ailment.

In a statement signed by Olawale Okunniyi, its director general, the group said the deceased was its national ambassador during her lifetime.

It said as an ambassador of NIM, Oniga helped to promote the ideals and values of the group tremendously after it was launched in 2017.


The group revealed that it is considering measures to immortalise the legacies of the late actress.

“She was a very committed Ambassador of the movement agenda to take back power to the masses of Nigeria and she was involved in the movement accords in some states of the federation and at the National level, which yielded results during the 2019 elections,” it read.

“Lady Racheal Oniga, a title chief of Ile Ife, installed by Oba Sijuwade Olubuse, lived and died as a voice of the voiceless


“Our consolation in her exit, is drawn from a life well spent by the screen goddess and ambassador of the voiceless.

“We therefore pray for the repose of her soul and fortitude to bear this huge loss by her children and family members. We hope to explore a way of immortalising her legacies in succeeding days. Racheal Oniga lives on.”
