Veteran Nollywood actor Chiwetalu Agu has dismissed viral reports on Facebook saying that he is critically ill and another saying that he is dead.
The rumour started after Chiwetalu Agu posted a particular picture where he looks a bit emaciated (old age things)..
So many uninformed people started posting that the comic actor is sick and needs prayers and money.
Chiwetalu Agu earlier reacted via his Instagram Page, dismissing the sick and death rumours. He wrote:
“Good morning my people ❤️
Please disregard any foolish post on Facebook by anybody saying am SICK and SOLICITING for MONEY, I’m in a perfect good health condition, i will never ask anybody for A DIME neither am I on FACEBOOK.
Signed Chief Chiwetalu Agu”
Just this morning, Chiwetalu Agu posted some other screenshots of people that posted about his rumoured death and angrily dismissed it again. He wrote:
“Yesterday I got over 500 calls from Friends Fans And Family who want to know if the stories that they read on Facebook was TRUE
