The Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN said they have suspended one of their own and a top Nollywood Actor, Jerry Williams, following Williams’ involvement in abuse of illicit drugs.

A statement signed by the National President of AGN, Mr Emeka Rollas, MON, said the Guild had monitored Jerry’s involvement in illicit substances since last year.

According to the body, Williams’ use of drugs “has gotten out of hand and as it is now, he cannot be allowed to associate with other performers on set due to endangering their lives.”

The Guild also revealed that Williams would have been suspended before now, but AGN, “decided to allow him go through minor treatments, which he has been defaulting over time.” The Guild stated that “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.”
