What we know about her sickness
A few weeks ago, the actress opened up about her mental health challenges.
“Everything is going to be fine. I have an issue right now, and it’s taking my life. I will not die. We will get over it,” Ameh had said.
The actress explained that she was given a job but could not carry it out because she was undergoing mental issues.
The 48-year-old actress had earlier revealed that she got pregnant with her daughter at 13.
Despite her early motherhood, the actress, in October 2020, lost her daughter, Aladi Godgift, who was over 30 years old.
Aladi had died after an unsuccessful surgery in Abuja, and the actress, last year, visited her daughter’s grave site to mark the deceased one-year remembrance.
