Isaac said: “My attention has been drawn to the rumour circulating on social media claiming that immediate past Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Akunyili, is dead.

Mr. Umunna said, “I spoke with Dora’s husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili, and her brother, Dr. Francis Anayo Edemobi, both of whom are with her in the hospital, and they both assured me that she is responding to treatment.

Mr. Umunna explained saying that Mrs. Akunyili felt very sick last weekend and was told by her doctors in Abuja to fly to India on Sunday for full medical attention.

He also took the opportunity to thank Nigerians for praying for her, He said: “She is grateful to Nigerians for their prayers and remains confident that Almighty God will hear our prayers and grant her quick recovery.

“The public is advised to disregard any rumours or reports to the contrary. Those engaged in spreading this satanic rumour should desist. What Prof. Akunyili need at this time is not prophesies of doom or alarming false reports about her health condition but continued prayers and best wishes,” Mr. Umunna said.
