Nollywood actress and AGN president, Ibinabo Fiberesima, has lashed out at all those who blamed the Actors Guild for abandoning late actor, Muna Obiekwe to his fate. 

According to a report by Vanguard, Ibinabo spoke during the candlelight service that was held in honour of the actor in Lagos at the National Stadium in Surulere (outside Ojez Restaurant). Ibinabo revealed she was shocked at reports going round that the AGN dumped Muna. Here's what she said, in quote: 

"Think first before you write. The man was married, he had a wife and children. When you go about writing rubbish about the dead, it will haunt you. If you don't know the truth about something, don't spread it. It's even worse if you are an AGN member. Everyone is sad because of his death. If I had known, being the kind of person I am, I would die to save Muna. I didn't know, most of us never knew and Muna begged the few people who knew not to tell anyone. He had his reasons and let us respect it. Let's stop writing rubbish - He drank alcohol, does that make you better than him? Let us respect Muna, he's no longer with us. Mind your business" -Ibinabo said, during the candlelight service for Muna. 

Ibinabo also accused some members of AGN of double standards, when she said: "All those throwing daggers at AGN, dumping Muna and not taking care of him. How many of you are registered and validated AGN members. But when something goes wrong, you'll remember AGN. This AGN is a guild, not a hospital. We are worried about your welfare, but if you're not registered with us, we cannot help you. We have helped people we don't even know because they came to us. If you need help, let us know" she says. 

Muna Obiekwe is a popular Nollywood actor, who gave up the ghost while on his 10th dialysis in a Festac clinic on January 18, 2015--due to kidney failure. He is survived by his wife and two little children. Muna is also reportedly the first cousin of Yul Edochie, that makes him a member of veteran actor Pete Edochie’s family.
