Mr Ibu had openly denied the rumour few days ago after it had really gone viral. According to him, his sister, Queen Chioma Egboh who recently opened a new media firm ” Politics And Life Magazine” started the rumour in order to attract followers to her new platform.
Chioma had made an announcement that her brother (Mr. Ibu) had stroke as a result of a spiritual attack and that he was already recovering.
Speaking on the issue, Mr Ibu said:
Do you want to be the first to get these news,updates and vital info?
“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.”
