Popular Nollywood actor, Victor Olaotan is in a “stable” condition after his alleged involvement in an auto crash on Lagos-Ibadan Expressway this morning, TNS can report.
Reports making the rounds earlier today had it that the actor is in a coma after the accident of which not much details have emerged.
However, when TNS reached out to Olaotan via his direct phone number, an elderly female voice who simply identified herself as the actor’s family member but who we believe to be his wife said that he is in a “stable” condition.
“He is stable and fine. We his family are thankful,” she said.
She however declined to give any further information, even of the accident, saying “E ṣá ba wa dúpẹ́ (Please just be thankful on our behalf)” before hanging up.
Victor Olaotan has spent several decades as a stage and screen actor. He was one of the leading stars in what is Nigeria’s longest running TV drama, Tinsel.
