The president of the Scriptwriters Guild of Nigeria, Chike Bryan, is dead.

Bryan was said to have lost his cool and suffered stroke on Saturday after receiving a call from his family.

According to a colleague, Mac Collins Chidebe, Bryan received the call while riding in a friend’s car after which he started vomiting and died later.

“A guy I have worked so closely with in almost 10 months. Suddenly he disappears from my life. Death, O death, why?

“He woke up this morning hale and hearty. He had breakfast at a friend’s and was on his way to the office.

“Praying fervently for him, our friend made a turn and drove on neck break speed to his house where he picked his wife and rushed him to the hospital where he was admitted but later referred to LASUTH in Ikeja.

“On getting to LASUTH, the wife was told the hospital could not admit him for lack of bed space. For almost five hours my buddy was hanging on to dear life without treatment. How callous can some medical personnel be! An emergency case was treated with so much nonchalance.

“So much grief, sorrow, and tears in his home. CBN left behind a young wife and 5 lovely kids. I pray God to give the family the fortitude to bear this irreparable loss,” Chidebe write on his Facebook page.

The deceased had been  diagnosed with chronic renal failure in July 2013 after which Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) president, Ibinabo Fiberesima raised about 10 million naira from President Goodluck Jonathan for his transplant.

Some of his popular movies include Magic Cap, A Million Madness and Polygamy.
