One of the children of veteran actor, Peter Bunor; Peter Bunor Junior, has said his father has kicked the bucket as a result of continuous battle to complications arising from stroke for about five years.
In a chat with Punch on Saturday, he revealed that his father’s death was caused by “complications from the series of strokes he suffered over the past five years. He passed away in Asaba, Delta State.”
Peter Bunor Junior broke the news of his father’s demise on Friday on his social media handle at 5.26pm. He wrote:
“In the early hours of today, my father, friend, teacher, confidant passed on.”
“Nobody wants to lose a loved one, especially one who has been such a huge figure in one’s life. It is a painful loss to me, but perhaps he deserved to go and rest. The past five years have been difficult.”
He further told SUNDAY PUNCH that he just finished the production of a television series when he heard the news of his father’s death
