Julius Agwu, Nigerian comedian, is not on admission at Lewisham hospital, in London, United Kingdom.
Reports had surfaced on Monday morning that Agwu suffered a relapse of his brain tumour which he underwent surgery for last year.
Agwu was said to have been admitted into Lewisham hospital, however, TheCable Lifestyle has learnt that no such admission occured.
“We have no one by that name in Lewisham hospital. No one was admitted into our hospital by that name”, a representative of the hospital informed our reporter.
Even after providing Julius Agwu’s date of birth, the hospital representative said there was no record of the entertainer being admitted into the hospital in the past week.
“Are you sure it is Lewisham hospital? I’ve gone through the admission record and there’s no Julius Agwu here”, she added.
Julius arrived London six days ago for the UK edition of his yearly comedy show, “Crack Ya Ribs”, however, unconfirmed reports suggest that he missed the event as a result of ill health.
Meanwhile, a representative of Agwu has revealed to Pulse that the comedian only went for a routine visit to his doctor on Friday.
“That’s not true. It’s nothing serious. Julius just went for a checkup. He was grounded on routine visit to the Doctor on Friday because he hadn’t been having enough rest as prescribed by the doctor.
“He’s doing pretty well and might even come over to US to complete his much needed rest and routine doctor’s visit”, the comic’s representative was quoted to have said.
Two lumps were discovered in Agwu’s brain in 2015 after series of tests were conducted on him.
He went under the knife on Tuesday, May 12, 2015, for about 4 hours at the Park Plaza hospital in Houston, Texas.
Following his recovery from the surgery, Agwu made known his new outlook on life as he constantly criticised the ills and vices prevalent in the Nigerian entertainment industry.
