I’ll stop working in some states – Junior Pope says after armed robbery attack
Junior Pope, an actor who was attacked by robbers in Delta State, he said that he decided to quit working in certain areas of the country for safety.
Junior Pope, who talked about the tragic incident during a Saturday Beats interview, stated that he would not appear in movies locations other than Asaba, Lagos or Abuja until the country is safe.
“We were done filming and it was raining cats and dogs, so we didn’t leave on time. Usually, Reginal Daniel and her husband would have sent us (to the location) with some security men, but they did not come along.
“The president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, is working towards ensuring that once filmmakers stay on location beyond 8 pm, they must provide security for the cast and crew. Considering the state of insecurity in the state, it is a good move. I am also using this medium to call on the state governor and the commissioner of police to look into this matter, and make Delta State safe.
“For now, there are some states and cities I won’t be visiting. Recently, I was called for a job in Port Harcourt (Rivers State) but I told them I could not go there, until I know the country is safe and secure. If you don’t shoot your movies in Asaba, Lagos or Abuja, I would not feature in it.”
Also sharing his thoughts on happiness in a home, Junior Pope said;
“If the relationship break-up is not on the basis of infidelity, the happiness of a home in Africa is in the hands of the man. The man makes 99.9 per cent of the decisions in his home. In this generation, there are a lot of second and third wives, and even mistresses. I was in a gathering recently with some men, and they were giving reasons one has to have more than one wife.”
