Adanma Luke, the producer of the movie Jnr Pope and four others were working on before they died in a boat mishap on April 10, has broken her silence.

 

In a video she posted on her Instagram page, Adanma said she was also supposed to be on the ill-fated boat. She captioned the video ;

‘’Why me? Life Jacket was free”

 

While speaking, she said she has not been quiet since the unfortunate incident. In her words;

‘’I have been so traumatized, so cold. This whole thing still feels like a dream to me. I have not been able to make any statement since because we have been trying to recover the bodies. I have been providing fuel money to those that have been looking for the bodies. I provided caskets, ambulances to make sure the bodies were conveyed to their villages to the families that wanted it to be done. I have not been quiet. I have been doing things just so these people can rest.

It is so sad this had to happen on my set. I blame myself because I would have been doing my thing in Lagos. I blame myself for coming to Asaba.

I was supposed to be on that boat. My production manager was calling me to bring the memory card so they could start filming and I told him to come and collect it. He said ‘Mama, you know this place is far, just bring it for us’.  I said why haven’t you people crossed? Why haven’t you people gone to work? He said they were waiting for Junior Pope to arrive.

Before now, on the 9th, they went there on their own. Junior Pope came on his own. On this 10th, while I was getting ready to go drop the card with them, I was accompanied by my brother’s two children who were supposed to be with me on that boat together. On getting there, I saw Emeka. He was my DOP. He was just sitting. I was surprised because I didn’t see others.

I asked him what is it? People surrounded him. He was quiet. I said Emeka, talk to me, what is it? why haven’t you crossed? Where is Ogolo? Where is everybody? has JP come? He was quiet.

Emeka now said ‘’JP Don go! Abigail don go! Friday don go! Precious don go! I still did not understand what he meant by that. I said Emeka what do you mean? Don go where? He said ‘’Them dey inside water!””

Adanma said she wanted to go into the water to search for them but was held back.
