Veteran Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie has furiously distanced himself from those linking him to the call by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), asking indigenes of Anambra State to boycott the upcoming governorship election.
The 70-year-old icon whose son, Yul Edochie has indicated in running in the election not only debunked the statement, he also threatened to place a curse on those behind the alleged message linking him to the call.
“I Just returned from Port-Harcourt yesterday and my attention has been drawn to a publication on WhatsApp allegedly credited to me in respect of IPOB and the call to boycott elections in Anambra.
“A lot of nonsense has been ascribed to me in the past and I have maintained my peace. Now I am very angry. “Let me warn. I don’t want to place a curse on any body, but those who know me will tell you that if I curse it comes to pass, I am 70 years old.
“I have learnt that the message originated from this number 08034072277.”
“CHIEF PETE EDOCHIE (MON).”
