“To all those who have decided to ignore our last warning regarding fake news kindly prepare for legal action,” the actress added.
Last year in November, Joke Silva dispelled rumours that her husband was dead.
In an interview with Chude Jideonwo, the actress revealed that Olu Jacobs had dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB).
According to her, “this has been going on for a couple of years. My husband is dealing with issues and it is been going on for a couple of years. It is known as dementia with Lewy Body.
“It is a degenerative disease that affects the brain and it is almost like a Parkinson’s type of disease, it affects the brain and affects the person”.
The actor recently celebrated his 80th birthday.
This is the second time the actress is debunking such rumors in months.
