According to an unconfirmed report, talented Nollywood actor, Ani Iyoho is allegedly currently fighting for his life after a location tragedy on set of a movie being directed by Stanlee Ohikhuare.
We hear that the actor was severely burnt on the set of Behind the Wheels in Lekki, Lagos yesterday when a fire scene went horribly wrong. Confusion ensued and despite efforts to use fire extinguishers to put the fire under control, the tragedy could not be averted.
The report states that Ani Iyoho was rushed to an undisclosed hospital where he has been placed under emergency care. It also claims that the alleged tragedy could have been averted as the fire scene was not originally part of the script and an earlier attempt at the stunt, three weeks ago, failed.
TNS has tried to contact the director but he has not picked our calls, neither has he responded to our text message. We do not rule out that this might actually be a publicity stunt by Stanlee and co to raise awareness for the movie as we are aware that shoot for this particular film had been announced as completed several weeks ago.
We will keep you updated on this.
