Kumawood actor Bishop Bernard Nyarko has passed away leaving many movie lovers and Ghanaians in general in shock.
As reported by YEN.com.gh, news of Bernard Nyarko's came up on social media on the evening of Saturday, May 2, 2020.
The news went viral on social media but details concerning the well-built actor's death were a bit sketchy.
Hours after the viral reports, more details have emerged about the unfortunate demise of Bishop Nyarko.
According to new information gathered by YEN.com.gh, the star actor died at the Greater Regional Hospital, popularly known as Ridge Hospital.
From what we gathered, Bernard Nyarko recently suffered a serious ailment which got him hospitalised for some time.
But he was known by many to have recovered from that major illness and was said to be doing much better.
In an interview on Nana Ama McBrown's United Showbiz, a colleague of the deceased Mercy Asiedu confirmed that Bishop Nyarko fell sick some time ago but her understanding was that he had recovered.
Another Kumawood actor, Abraham Davis, popularly known as Salinko, has also confirmed in an interview with SammyKayMedia that Bernard Nyarko had recovered was left with follow up laboratory tests.
While both Mercy Asiedu and Salinko confirmed that Bernard Nyarko fell sick and subsequently recovered, none of them was able to give details about the sickness.
But a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Ghpage.com has claimed that close sources have revealed that Bishop Bernard Nyarko suffered colon cancer. It was the cancer that got him hospitalised before he reportedly got better.
YEN.com.gh, however, cannot confirm if the actor's sudden demise is in any way related to the reported case of colon cancer but it is clear now that Bishop Benard Nyarko was sick for sometime before he died.
