The Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, has confirmed the indefinite suspension of actor Jerry Williams due to his association with illegal substances.
According to a statement signed by AGN’s National President, Mr Emeka Rollas, MON, they have been monitoring Jerry’s involvement in illicit substances since December, last until it got out of hand, and as of now, he cannot be allowed to associate with other performers on set due to endangering their lives.
According to him, the situation is about fellow actors’ safety.
Part of the statement reads:
“The Guild has been monitoring his involvement in illicit substances since December last year, until it got out of hand, and he cannot now be allowed to associate with other performers on set due to danger.”
“He should have been suspended by now.” But we decided to let him go through minimal therapies, which he had been avoiding. But, as things stand, Jerry poses a risk not just to himself, but also to any performers who may be on set with him.
“As a result, we have decided to suspend him indefinitely until he receives a clean bill of health from a medical practitioner or a professional who deals with drug addiction.”
Jerry rose to prominence after starring in the epic film “The Chosen King.” In his previous films, he has played the parts of a “prince, king, warrior, and palace guard, hunter, romantic guy, terrorist, and many other characters.”
