He said: “Oh God! People are saying that I have stroke that I am down with stroke, why?
“How can you announce somebody’s sickness and you have many, you don’t even announce one.
“I don’t have any stroke please. This is my wife, my humble wife. Well, we hand over everything to God.”
Mr Ibu added that: “I have been receiving calls from across the world, and I don’t know who is spreading this false news about me. I don’t know what they are saying. Na their papa get stroke.”
