“I discovered him (late Quadri). He joined my group in 1996. It was shocking hearing of his death. I was told he took ill and was brought back from location earlier this week. That is not new to us as theatre practitioners. People can become ill and get treated.

“When I heard of his illness, I told some of his contemporaries that trained under me to visit him. I was told he has been moved to a private medical facility in Iwo for treatment. I never thought it would result to death.”
