The rumour, which spread like the harmattan fire on Thursday, April 4, 2019, about popular comedian and actor, John Okafor, aka Mr. Ibu, being knocked down by stroke has been rubbished by the man.
Wondering why people could be so mean, the 57-year-old Enugu indigene stated that nothing could be farther from the truth.
Angry and swiftly taking to his Instagram Page, perhaps to assuage his worried fans, Mr Ibu, had exclaimed: “Oh God! People are saying that I have a 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.
“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 their papa get a stroke.”
