My sister allegedly instigated stroke rumour for traffic for news platform – Mr Ibu


57-year-old Nollywood actor, John Okafor, popularly referred to as Mr Ibu, made a video recently to debunk a rumour about his health condition after it was reported that he had suffered a stroke but alas the actor has revealed that it was his sister, who instigated the fake news.

According to him “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 popular actor further stressed “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.”
