UPDATE: Jubilation as actor Junior Pope reportedly returns to life (VIDEO)

Junior Pope Odonwodo, the Nollywood actor, is reportedly alive — a few hours after he was reported dead.


The film star was earlier said to have fallen into the River Niger in Asaba, Delta state on his way to a movie location.


It was gathered he was in the company of some other actors.


“Yes. It happened at Asaba, River Niger. He had a fatal boat mishap. Unfortunately, he lost his life with four others that have not been identified yet,” Abubakar Yakubu, the national secretary of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), told TheCable Lifestyle on Wednesday.


A few hours later, Yakubu said the actor “is alive but in a coma”. He also disclosed that a medical team was called to resuscitate Pope.


According to the AGN secretary, the film star is currently in the hospital receiving treatment.


“Yes. He is alive. God has done it for us. He was in a coma all this while. Fortunately, when the medical team called, they said there is still life in him and they resuscitated him,” he said.


 “Presently he is in the hospital now. Receiving further treatment. I can confirm that he is alive.”

The AGN President, Emeka Rollas who earlier confirmed his death, has also confirmed he's back to life

Actress, Uche Nnanna also confirmed the news as she stated that what God cannot do doesn’t exist. She called for prayers for him as she revealed that he was still alive.


“What God cannot do doesn’t exist. Jp is still alive. Please let’s keep praying”.
