Popular Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu, has opened up about the people who spread the rumor that he was down with stroke.

Recall that KanyiDaily reported that Mr. Ibu has been down for a while with a mysterious stroke shortly after he returned from his recent trip to Owerri.

The actor had to make a video to debunk the rumor about his health condition, stressing that he is not suffering from any form of sickness or ailment.

While speaking to Saturday Beats, the 57-year-old Enugu State-born actor 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.”
