Abubakar Yakubu, National Secretary of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), confirmed this tragic incident on Wednesday morning, revealing the actor died of Kidney disease on Tuesday.

It was found that a few weeks ago a video was circulating on social media of the veteran actor lying on his sickbed begging for financial help.

I know many of us may be asking who is Rich Oganiru?

Who is Rich Oganiru?

If you were not born in the ’90s, you may not have heard about this actor. His actions graced the screen of many Nigerian home movies.

He starred in more than 300 films including Queen of Hasso Rock, Wasted Effort, Pay Day, Lacrima, Stoneface in Love, Givers Never Mangel, His Majesty, My Destiny, Battle Of The Rich, Political Control, touching love, total control, and the latest confession and much more.

Oganiru has been in the industry for over two decades.

What Happened To Rich Oganiru Wife?

In 2012, Oganiru was reportedly arrested for allegedly killing his wife in Abuja, following a family petition. He firmly denied the allegations.

The woman was reportedly hospitalized in a hospital in Abuja for three months with an unknown illness after the Nollywood actor abandoned her until the last day of her discharge before Oganiru came to the hospital to take her home.

When she returned home, she died that same day. However, police sources told Vanguard on Saturday that Mr. Oganiru has been released on bail pending investigations into the woman’s death and alleged murder.

When Saturday Vanguard asked; why police would bail a murder suspect, the source revealed that while there was evidence that the actor had mistreated his wife for her welfare, there was no evidence that the actor had played any role in her death.
