Nollywood has once again been thrown into mourning over the death of Nigerian-Cameroonian actor, Edgard Leroy. The movie star died just a few weeks to his 27th birthday after he was involved in a fatal car crash on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway on June 11, 2022.

The terrible news was shared online by fellow filmmaker, David Akande, who noted that Edgard had been on his way to Ibadan for a movie shoot when his life was cut short by the accident.
