Former Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party’s (PDP) Board of Trustees, Chief Tony Anenih, has debunked rumours of his death, describing it as the handiwork of mischief makers.
An online media reported that Anenih had died of cancer-related ailment in a London hospital on Tuesday night. But the Uromi chief told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on telephone from London where he has been for a while that he was well and strong.
“If I am dead, will I be talking to you? I am in London; I am alive and enjoying myself,” he said.
“I am not going to issue any press release to debunk the rumour.
“God will punish them, and I believe that they will die before me. I will be back by Sunday,” he said.
According to another report, Anenih had slumped on Sunday while having breakfast at his Durham Broadway London home after being recently discharged from hospital.
