Ibere Agwu, wife of Julius Agwu, a Nigerian comedian, has said his present condition is not as dire as being portrayed on social media.
The comedian was on Monday said to have suffered a relapse of the brain tumor he battled with in 2015, and as such, many reports inferred that his condition was critical.
His wife however, says Agwu was admitted due to stress-related issues and that he’s receiving adequate care.
“On behalf of my husband Julius Agwu, my children Zahra and Zadok and the entire Reel Laif Entertainment family, I say a big thank you to all that have wished us well; prayed for us and shown concern during the past 96 hours. We thank God for his faithfulness and his restoration power.
“Let me also use this medium to diffuse the fears created by some media outlets that had good intentions but used old pictures from Julius’ May 2015 craniotomy, and many people mistook it for his current situation.
“The pictures displayed on social media in the past 72 hours are old pictures and do not correctly represent his current situation.
“Julius was admitted due to stress-related issues that necessitated proper rest and rehabilitation.
“As many of you may already know, he had several shows lined up in the UK during the Nothing hill Carnivals. By the grace of God Julius is doing well and receiving adequate care.”
