Nollywood actor Jerry Williams has been suspended indefinitely by the leadership of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).
He was suspended for abuse of illicit drugs.
His suspension was announced in a statement by AGN’s National President, Emeka Rollas, MON.
According to the statement, the body has been monitoring Jerry’s alleged involvement in illicit substances since last December, until it got out of hand.
Rollas said the actor cannot be allowed to associate with other performers on set to avoid ‘’endangering their lives.”
The statement reads in part:
“The Guild has been monitoring his involvement in illicit substances since December last year, until it got out of hand and as it is now, he cannot be allowed to associate with other performers on set due to danger.
“He ought to have been suspended before now. But we decided to allow him go through minor treatments, which he has been defaulting overtimes.
“But at it stands now, Jerry is a risk not only to himself but also, other actors who might be acting alongside him on set.
“We, therefore, have decided to suspend him indefinitely until he gets a clean bill of health from a medical practitioner or a professional that handles drugs abuse.’”
