He also assured that the guild would notify the public of any developments.

“It is true. He is currently in the hospital. They are running tests on him,” said the national secretary.

Sources claim Orji had been grappling with fatigue for weeks and is now unable to talk or move.


Fans and colleagues of the actor have taken to his Instagram page to express their best wishes.
