VerseNews recalls that the group met an untimely end in a boat accident on the Anam River in Anambra State while leaving a movie location.

Dave Ogbeni shared a poignant Instagram post recounting his last conversation with Junior Pope. During this discussion, Junior Pope revealed his desire to share his story with bloggers, alluding to his declining health since December of the previous year. Despite Junior Pope’s eagerness to go public with his situation, Dave advised him to hold off, hoping they could resolve matters privately.

Dave wrote, “On the day before the incident, we were drinking together after watching an Arsenal/Bayern Munich match. Junior Pope said, ‘Dave, I think it’s time I told the bloggers my story.’ I said, ‘Bro, it hasn’t gotten to that; we can settle this without the world knowing.’ He looked me in the eyes and said, ‘What do you mean? Since December? I’m dying gradually, and you’re telling me not to tell the world? If I die, you will be the one to tell the world my story then.’ He died the next day.”

In addition to the tragedy, unconfirmed rumors have emerged suggesting that Junior Pope and his wife were living apart prior to the accident. As the community mourns this devastating loss, these revelations add further complexity to the actor’s final days.
