The Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, has suspended Jerry Williams, indefinitely, over his involvement with illicit substances.

The National President of the guild, Emeka Rollas, who announced this in a statement released on Thursday, said AGN has been monitoring Williams’ “involvement in illicit substances since December last year, until it got out of hand.”

He said the Guild ought to have suspended Williams before now but “decided to allow him go through minor treatments, which he has been defaulting overtimes.”

Rollas said AGN finally took the decision to suspend him after observing that he “is a risk not only to himself but also, other actors who might be acting alongside him on set.”

The 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.”
