Former Super Eagles head coach Christian Chukwu has come out to debunk the news of his death, saying that he is hale and hearty. Christian Chukwu disclosed this on Sunday in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at his Trans Ekulu residence, Enugu.
Since the 8 of January this year social media have been awash with the news of his death. However, Chukwu who celebrated his 70th birthday on the 4th of January said he was surprised that some people would wish him death.
According to Chrstian Chukwu, he said: “I am terribly embarrassed with this news that I am dead. Several people have been calling me from across the world since the news broke.” “I am still investigating the source of the story.”
Chukwu, popularly known as ‘chairman’ during his career days, said that God was in control of his life. He also used the chance to advise journalists and social media influencers saying they should always investigate and get their facts right before writing. He was formerly seriously ill two years ago but now he is fine and has recovered fully from the illness.
Chukwu was in the company of some of his close associates, including Barry Diala, Joseph Agu and his kinsman, Peter Agu, when he granted the interview.
