Veteran actor, Pete Edochie has rejected claims that he called for the boycott of elections in Anambra state.
He threatened to curse anybody or group that further uses him name for an inglorious purpose.
The actor was reacting to a viral message on whatsapp that alleged that he wants people of Anambra State to boycott the upcoming election.
He said this in a statement he personally signed. “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 Anmabra.
“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 anybody, but those who know me will tell you if I curse it comes to pass, I am 70 years old.
“I have learnt that the message originated from this number 08034072277.”
