The decision to shut Air Nigeria’s operations has left Julius Agwu stranded.

Ace comedian, Julius Agwu, is stranded in the U.S., following the Air Nigeria crisis.

Air Nigeria suspended all its activities from Wednesday in an announcement by billionaire owner, Jimoh Ibrahim.

Julius Agwu, one of the victims of Mr. Ibrahim’s actions, took to Twitter to lament his current situation.

According to Agwu, he flew with Air Nigeria from Nigeria to London for his Crack Ya Ribs show held on August 26, 2012 at the plush Lighthouse Hall, Camberwell. He cannot return to Nigeria now, because the airline has abruptly shut down services.

His tweets read, “Is it a Crime to support nigerian bizness, we flew AirNig to Lond, now we can’t return cos #JimohIbrahimOFR ordered a closure GEJ #WHY?☹’.”

”#JimohIbrahimOFR #JimohIbrahimOFR #JimohIbrahimOFR #JimohIbrahimOFR #JimohIbrahimOFR GEJ#WHY?????’Postpone your closure until after our return o!!!! #NaijaBizness,” the comedian tweeted.

The challenge notwithstanding, Agwu who has already staged concerts in London and New York, will be going live on stage in Houston on Saturday, September 8, 2012.
