According to him, he deliberately waited until after the burial to disclose the reasons behind his absence and silence. “I didn’t want to say anything till after his burial. I know many asked why I wasn’t there. Why I haven’t said anything about it since,” Edochie wrote.

“I took him like a brother and good friend. I was there for him when he needed me. But he stabbed me in the back repeatedly. That’s life!” he added.

The actor promised to reveal the full story soon, hinting at lessons to be learned from his experience. “I’ll drop the full details soon so others can learn from it. Be careful what you wish people, it could come to you,” he added.

Junior Pope tragically passed away on April 10, 2024, alongside three others, after their boat capsised on the Anam River in Anambra State while they were returning from a film location.
