The Federal Government has said it is shocked and saddened at the death of

veteran movie producer Eddie Ugboma, referring to him as a worthy pioneer of

today’s burgeoning Nollywood industry.

In a statement issued in Lagos on Sunday, the Minister of Information

and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said the fact that Chief Ugboma

lived a purposeful life and left his footprint in the sands of time is

a soothing consolation for all who knew him.

”In his lifetime, Chief Ugboma produced a number of avant-garde

movies that blazed the trail and fired the imagination of those who

would later become the top producers in today’s Nollywood. In a way,

the success of the industry is a tribute to him and his co-pioneers,”

the Minister said.

He expressed Federal Government’s condolences to the family and

friends of the late film maker and prayed that God will grant him

eternal rest and comfort his family.
