Uche Edochie, the son of legendary Nollywood actor Pete Edochie, has denied that his father died in a car accident.
He responded to the rumors on his official Instagram page, where he regretted the spread of erroneous information.
According to him, this is not the first time individuals have made up stories regarding his father’s death, which is why he felt it was vital to confront it this time.
In his own words:
“Good day, everyone. My father is fine. He is neither dead nor has he been in an accident. Believe it or not, a group of persons has been tasked with declaring my father’s death for the past twenty years. This is done every other year. Humans are a peculiar species. I’m curious about what drives people to act in this manner. These are mature people.
I’m guessing they do it to get people to visit their websites or just to get their attention. Nobody knows. If this was a one-time occurrence, I would not bother to discuss it. They have, nevertheless, persisted. They’ve been doing it for years, and pals have started phoning us again in the last few days. My father must be some kind of superhero, because he has died at least a hundred times in the last twenty years, according to those spreading this rumor.
Anyway, thanks for your time. I just needed to drop a short one and put an end to this nonsense. Have a fantastic week.
