Uche, son of Pete Edochie, has debunked the claims that the ace actor died from an accident.
In an Instagram post on Friday, Uche said the veteran actor is alive and was never involved in a car crash.
He also questioned the motives of those spreading the death rumours, adding that it keeps recurring for the past twenty years.
“Hi everyone. My dad is fine. No, he is not dead and he has not been in an accident. Believe it or not, for the past twenty years, a group of people has taken up the task of declaring that my dad is dead,” he wrote.
“They do this every other year. Human beings are a weird bunch. I wonder what motivates people to do things like this. These are adults.
“I guess they do it to drive traffic to their websites or just for their attention, Who knows. If this was a one-off incident, I would not even bother to talk about it. But they have persisted.
“They have been doing this for years now and in the past few days, friends are calling us yet again. My dad must be some sort of superhero because according to the people peddling this news, he has died like a hundred times in the past twenty years.
“Anyway thanks guys. Just needed to drop a quick one and shut this madness down. Have a superb week.”
