He did not survive the illness as the sad news of his death was announced on Facebook last night by his friend.

“Sunset At Noon, Tuesday 10th August 2021 Ahem… I’ve lost a good friend like a brother for years, a great Nollywood actor par excellence. I’m just speechless. R.I.P Amb. Rich Oganiru. RIP Amb Rich Oganiru. Well, his sad demise reminds me of a song ‘celebrate me while I am still alive’,” he posted.

Mr Oganiru has been living alone since 2012, when he lost his wife to Fibroid.

He was subsequently arrested for her murder, but he was cleared off all charges after evidence refuted the claims.
