Pete Edochi, the veteran Nollywood actor, has angrily reacted to a viral Whatsapp message that claims that he wants the people of Anambra State to boycott the upcoming governorship election by threatening to place a curse on those linking him to such calls by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
Edochie, whose son, Yul is also participating in the election threatened to place a curse on those behind the alleged message linking him to the call.
The 70-year-actor, in a statement he personally signed said, “I Just returned from Port-Harcourt yesterday and my attention has been drawn to a publication on WhatsApp allegedly credited to me in respect of IPOB and the call to boycott elections in Anambra.
“A lot of nonsense has been ascribed to me in the past and I have maintained my peace. Now I am very angry.
“Let me warn. I don’t want to place a curse on any body, but those who know me will tell you that if I curse it comes to pass, I am 70 years old.
“I have learnt that the message originated from this number 08034072277.”
