Junior Pope: Boat operators arrested by Anambra police

The Anambra State Police Command has shared that the operators of the boat in which the late actor, Junior Pope, was riding before he and three others were killed have been detained.

SP Tochukwu Ikenga, the state police spokesman, confirmed this to reporters on Saturday, adding that the boat operators were in police custody in connection with the terrible occurrence.

Ikenga also said that the movie's producer, Adanma Luke, had willingly turned herself to the police. He went on to add that additional members of the film's cast and staff will be questioned.

“Yes, the boat operators have been arrested. Even the producer of the movie, Adanma Luke. Their statements were taken, and interrogation is ongoing. Other members of the cast and crew of the movie would be invited for questioning.”

He emphasised that no details of the incident would be overlooked throughout the probe.

Allnews.ng had reported that filmmaker Samuel Olatunji revealed the news of Pope's death on Wednesday, April 10. He stated the movie star and three others died when their boat overturned.

"Four actors, including Jnr Pope, fell into Anam River on their way to a location, and their bodies have been recovered," he told reporters.
