Just In: Popular Nollywood Actress, Ify Onwuemene Dies Of Cancer

Nollywood actress, Ify Onwuemene, popular for her role in sitcom ‘Everyday People’ alongside late Sam Loco Efe, has died of cancer.

According to her colleague, Gloria Anozie-Young, the actress died on Tuesday after battling endometrial cancer during which her womb was removed.

Endometrial cancer is a type of cancer that begins in the lining of the womb (uterus). The cancer, which according to EMedicine is the most common female genital cancer in the world, mostly occurs in women after the age of 55.

It would be recalled that Ify back in 2020 sought financial assistance to pay for medical bills for her treatment.

Burial arrangements will be released by the family, Gloria wrote.
