This online news platform understands that Jerry Williams’ suspension was announced by the National President of the guild, Emeka Rollas, in a statement released on Thursday, June 29, 2023.
The AGN National President said the AGN has been monitoring Williams’ “involvement in illicit substances since December last year until it got out of hand.”
Rollas said the Guild ought to have suspended Williams before now but “decided to allow him to go through minor treatments, which he has been defaulting overtimes.”
Newsone Nigeria reports that Rollas said AGN finally took the decision to suspend him after observing that he “is a risk not only to himself but also, to other actors who might be acting alongside him on set.”
The AGN President said Williams will remain suspended “until he gets a clean bill of health from a medical practitioner or a professional that handles drug abuse.”
