He noted that there should be an emphasis on the provision of the medical department on every set of any fillm in cases of emergency.

 
Nigerian actor Ikechukwu Ogbonna, better known as IK Ogbonna has reacted to the death of actor, Junior Pope.
 
He called for urgent regulation of the rules binding shooting of films in Nollywood.
 
IK Ogbonna called the attention of the governing body to regulate late night shooting particularly for those who work tirelessly back and forth, developing weak immune systems.
 
He noted that there should be an emphasis on the provision of the medical department on every set of any fillm in cases of emergency.
 
The light-skinned actor added that a body that does not receive adequate rest deteriorates and lamented the frequent loss of celebrated Nollywood artistes.
 
“We must urgently address the issue of safety in Nollywood. There are several important points I would like to emphasize, but to summarize, it is crucial that every movie set includes a medical department from now on. 

“Additionally, we need to seriously consider the impact of late-night shoots, particularly on those who work tirelessly back-to-back. When the body does not receive proper rest, it inevitably begins to deteriorate (fail). 

“It is disheartening to say but we only hear of the celebrated we lose, but we tragically lose crew members all too frequently. May this unfortunate loss serve as a catalyst for change, ultimately saving lives,” he wrote.
