A Nigerian businesswoman has asserted that Murphy Afolabi, a deceased Nollywood star, owed her a large quantity of money before his tragic passing.
The woman made the remark on Monday, May 22, 2023, during the Firdau Prayer conducted in Lagos State in memory of the late star.
As the event unfolded, the woman courageously stepped forward and informed the Islamic clerics in attendance about her business dealings with the deceased actor.
When asked about her intentions and how she sought resolution, the woman revealed that a committee had already been established to recover the owed funds from the late actor’s family.
While the details of the business transaction and the specific nature of the outstanding debt were not disclosed in the report, the woman’s assertion during the solemn ceremony highlights her determination to seek what she believes is rightfully owed to her.
As the news spread, video footage capturing the woman’s statement during the Firdau Prayer ceremony circulated online.
The video serves as evidence of her claim and has garnered attention and discussion among Nollywood enthusiasts and the wider public.
It remains to be seen how the committee established to address the issue will proceed with the recovery of the owed funds and negotiate a resolution with the late actor’s family.
