Peter Edochie and his son, Yul Edochie on set of a movie
Few days ago, legendary Nollywood actor, Pete Edochie, trended online and social media as many wondered why the Nigerian movie's godfather who is loved by many, has passed away.
In a post on twitter, the son of movie star, Yul Edochie rubbished the false reports, and was furious at the influx of the unconfirmed reports.
On his Twitter handle @YulEdochie on Tuesday, the actor wrote: “My father, Chief Pete Edochie is alive and well. What do people gain from spreading these fake rumors without confirmation?? It’s just crazy.”
It would be recalled that this is not the first time news of the legendary actor being dead is making the rounds. In 2013, it was rumoured that Edochie, during the Christmas season, fell off a 50 feet height mountain in Kitzbuhel, Austria and died.
While his son has confirmed that his father is alive and well, the ace performer is yet to comment on the weird report.
