Nollywood actor Francis Duru announced the demise of his father, ten months after his mother’s death.
The actor took to his Instagram page on Wednesday to share the last picture he took with his father, breaking the news of his loss.
In an emotional tribute, Duru eulogised his father while recalling that his mother ‘just left’.
His caption read, “My last pix with you..dad..memories of yesterday..0 defined my essence…built my being…took the tough and the rough to put me on the turf…of life..
I salute you dad…as you took your last bow and transited to glory…you broke my heart this morning when you refused to wake..mum just left..you too ..hmm…so heavy…so painful…thank you..thank you…thank you dad for all..thank you..Will miss you…” (sic)
In November last year, the actor broke the news of his mother’s demise via Instagram three days before her burial.
The burial ceremony, which was held at Duru’s hometown in Mbano, Imo State, was attended by his colleagues and other celebrities.
Duru’s mother died at the age of 76. However, the actor did not disclose his father’s age while announcing the latter’s demise.
