Hanks Anuku, a Nollywood actor, has once again dismissed rumours that he is dead.


In a video shared on his social media page on Monday, the veteran movie star claimed such misinformation is being peddled by “poisonous press vipers.”

Anuku also called on the public to disregard the rumours about his death, adding that those wishing him evil would “be clothed with evil.”

“God is in charge of my life not them… They wish themselves evil and indeed they’ll be clothed with evil,” he said in the short video clip.

“I am Hank Anuku Nollywood actor and I’m alive. My haters are dead…Jesus Christ is my deliverer and he liveth. Poisonous press vipers on the prowl but they shall be perplexed and disappointed in Jesus’s name. Amen. I love you fans.”

The rebuttal is coming as the second since rumours of his death started to gain momentum on the internet. The veteran actor had shared a similar video on his Facebook page on June 6.


Born on August 27, 1960, the movie star has featured in several Nollywood thrillers, including ‘Face of a Murderer’, ‘Broad Daylight’, and ‘Men on Hard Way’.

The development comes days after rumours swirled that Olu Jacobs, another Nollywood star, had passed on.

The Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) would however, quash the unverified claims, stating that the veteran actor is “alive, very hale and hearty”.
