Nollywood actor, John Okafor popularly known as Mr Ibu, has revealed that his sister started the rumour that he was down with stroke.
Mr Ibu, had to make a video recently to debunk a rumour about his health condition after it was reported that he was down with a stroke.
The 57-year-old said that it was his sister, who instigated the fake news about his health. He said;
“I don’t know what actually happened; one of my sisters was also part of the rumour mongers.
“She just opened a media house; so she is looking for a way to make her brand go viral. I feel she should have consulted me before spreading this kind of news and I would have given her another angle to explore such that it would not affect my image.
“The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria also confirmed that I was sick and it is very funny. The only bad incident that has happened to me recently was when I was attacked in Nnewi during Christmas and I have recovered.
“I have forgiven my sister for what she did. I am alive and well, my wife was very angry over the news and wanted to take action but I told her not to do so.
“I’ve left it to God for Him to defend me.”
Based on Mr Ibu’s revelations it’s likely that his sister Queen Chioma Egboh who recently opened a new media firm ” Politics And Life Magazine” instigated the rumour to boast her readership and attract followers to her new platform.
According to e-Nigeria which first broke the news
“We also spoke with Mr. Ibu’s younger sister Chioma at 2.31p.m. on her Glo line ending with … 2135”
They further stated that Chioma confirmed that the brother (Mr. Ibu) had stroke and also confirmed that he was fast recuperating, and that it was a spiritual attack.
