On Sunday the 7th, Sam Loco was reported dead by radio and News sources like The Vangard and others, since we base most publications on such "reliable" sources we were wrong too.

Sam Loco is Not dead - it has been confirmed by the Jara TV that he suffered a heartattack on film location and was rushed to the hospital, witnesses assumed he was dead and spread the news fast like wild fire.
He is now recuperating gradually in hospital.

However, some people Still doubt authenticity of this news and we await an official statement of his status from Other legitimate sources.
Konkonsa people Also added that he might have been in Owerri for "PLEASURE" u know nah (owerri hotel) - No be me talk am oh.

The Comedian Julius Awgu also sent tweets urging people to let Sam Loco rest in peace and stop all the rumors, verifying that he is dead. - so who to believe

Enugu State government to give Late Sam Loco Efe a State Burial
« Reply #3 on: August 11, 2011, 01:25 PM »
The Enugu State governor, Sullivan Chime has promised yesterday, to give the late veteran actor and salient comic character, Sam Loco Efe, a state burial.
Describing his death as a great loss to the entertainment industry, Enugu State and  the country at large, Governor Chime through a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media, Afam Okereke, also lamented Sam Loco's exit.

The Enugu Governor also commended on Efe’s participation at the Enugu State chapter of Actor Guild of Nigeria.

The Late Actor was once quoted saying:
    "I am Sam Loco from Benin in Edo State. Many people misplace my surname for a Delta man. Efe is a Benin name although the Urhobo people popularized it. Efe means Wealth in Benin as it also means in Urhobo but it means Cloth in Ibo. My surname is fully pronounced Efeeimwonkiyeke, meaning ‘wealth has no time limit.’ One can be wealthy at 90 when people must have lost hope. What actually happened was that my grandmother was having only female children and after so many years, she gave birth to my father at an old age and when he arrived, the name given to him is "you see now my wealth has finally arrived." I later inherited this from my father as I was the last of my parents’ children and the only male child."

so what are the possibilities of Sam Loco being buried in Enugu? or will it take place in Edo - and still be a State burial?
