On the night before his demise, he had, as usual, exchanged banter and jokes with friends and colleagues till about 11p.m. before retiring to his room.

“But the next morning when he didn’t come down for breakfast, worried colleagues went knocking on his door. Of course, they knew he was inside. And when no response came, they called me. I then advised that the hotel contact the police. And when the room was eventually opened, the cold body of Sam was found on a seat in the room.

“Because I was nominated for the City People Awards and couldn’t go to see him in Owerri, he told me he would first stop over at Yenagoa and on today travel to his farm in Abakaliki, Ebonyi to wait for me. He said he was going to the farm house to rest and take a break from the rigours of film shooting and editing. That never happened because he died the next morning.”

Former President Jonathan who was ruling then described the late actor as an accomplished artiste whose works helped to raise the dignity and style of the industry.
Fashola on his part praised him for his unwavering commitment to his chosen profession despite the challenges he met.

Jonathan’s condolence was conveyed through a press statement by Dr Reuben Abati, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity.

Former Gov. Fashola in his condolence message signed by his Special Adviser on Media, Mr. Akeem Bello, to the then President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Mr. Segun Arinze, described the deceased as an extraordinarily gifted thespian whose mastery of his craft on both stage and screen was unrivalled.
