Earlier in April, the 57-year-old had to make a video to clear the rumour about his health.
Speaking to Punch about the rumour, the comic actor said his sister instigated the fake news about his health.
“I don’t know what actually happened; one of my sisters was also part of the rumour mongers.
“She just opened a media house; so she is looking for a way to make her brand go viral. I feel she should have consulted me before spreading this kind of news and I would have given her another angle to explore such that it would not affect my image, he said.
Okafor also said it’s funny that President of Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN, Emeka Rollas confirmed the claim that he was hit with stroke and that he was being taken care of by an undisclosed traditional doctor.
“The President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria also confirmed that I was sick and it is very funny. The only bad incident that has happened to me recently was when I was attacked in Nnewi during Christmas and I have recovered, he said.
“I have forgiven my sister for what she did. I am alive and well, my wife was very angry over the news and wanted to take action but I told her not to do so.
“I’ve left it to God for Him to defend me.”

Queen of Soul and international music star, Bukola Elemide, popularly known as Asa has revealed how she was once duped by Yahoo boys.
Speaking in a recent interview with Cool FM’s program #TheRoadShow, she claimed that the Yahoo boys made a mess of her by emptying her bank account.
She said “Yahoo Boys emptied my bank account, but we won’t go into that,”
Asa has also identified with Naira Marley’s movement and she is no ashamed of being called a Marlian.
“I think I’m a Marlian. I love him, I think he is awesome,” she declared.
She further said she will vote for him if he ran for any Governorship election.
The Nigerian-French singer also disclosed that she had a rap career (or not) before the jazz and guitar but called it quits because she wasn’t good enough.
Asa is currently promoting ‘Lucid’, her latest work which is a follow-up to ‘Bed of Stone’ which was released in 2014. Early this year, she released two singles, ‘The Beginning,’ and ‘Good Thing.’ She released ‘Beautiful Imperfection’ in collaboration with a French composer, Nicolas Mollard.
Asa has won the prestigious French Constant in Award in 2008 after the release of several albums, including, “Asa’’, which charted radios across Europe, Asia, and Africa.
Her music influence grew from her father’s music collection built up for his work as a cinematographer, with records featuring American, Nigerian and African soul classics such as Mavin Gaye, Fela Kuti, Bob Marley, Sunny Ade, Diana Ross, Miriam Makeba.
Meanwhile, controversial hip hop artist, Azeez Fashola, popularly known as Naira Marley, on Wednesday, cautioned his fans, whom he calls ‘Marlians’, against destroying their future.
