The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, confirmed the news to newsmen via telephone on Monday morning.
“We lost Ada. No details at the moment, but we’ve lost Ada,” Said Rolla.
Adah reportedly collapsed and eventually died in Warri, Delta State, at about 11 p.m. on Sunday.
She was said to have been invited to Warri by an oil company worker and his family when she breathed her last.
It was gathered that she gave up the ghost on the way as she was being rushed to the nearby Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation Hospital.
The NNPC hospital, Warri, is yet to make public the autopsy report of the likely cause or causes of Adah Ameh’s sudden death.
Also, the police public relations officer (PPRO) for Delta State Command, DSP Bright Edafe, could not be reached for comments at the time of filing this report.
It would be recalled that the actress spoke about her mental health challenges weeks back.
“Everything is going to be fine. I have an issue right now, and it’s taking my life. I will not die. We will get over it,” Ameh had said.
The actress explained that she was given a job but could not carry it out because she was undergoing mental issues.
The 48-year-old actress lost her daughter in October 2020 and demise of her daughter affected her psychologically.
