There has been word making rounds on the internet that Veteran Nollywood comic actor John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu, is down with stroke.
Social media was flooded with reports on Thursday that the 57 years old actor was hit by a mysterious stroke after a trip to Owerri, the capital city of Imo state.
The sad news generated concerns especially from fans of the actor who called for prayers and support for him.
However, the actor recently went live on Instagram and debunked the news as rumor and handed those who generated it to God.
He said: “Oh God! People are saying that I have stroke that I am down with stroke, why?
“How can you announce somebody’s sickness and you have many, you don’t even announce one.
“I don’t have any stroke please. This is my wife, my humble wife. Well, we hand over everything to God.”
He also said he has forgiven the perpetrators.
Mr Ibu added that: “I have been receiving calls from across the world, and I don’t know who is spreading this false news about me. I don’t know what they are saying. Na dia papa get stroke.”
