A video of a man roaming the streets in tattered clothes who many believed to be the actor surfaced online on Monday, November 14.
In the disturbing footage, the man, who bears the same physical appearance as the movie star, is seen looking unkempt and haggard on the streets of Benin.
Reacting to the speculations in an Instagram story on Monday night, Shan George pointed out that the actor is not insane as widely feared.
The 52-year-old who also shared pictures of herself and the actor at a movie location added that they were both on a movie set three days ago.
While popular actress Shan George said the actor was doing fine, Nancy took to her Instagram page and slammed Shan for covering the issue up, rather than helping him get help.
According to her, she has been trying to keep calm and mind her business since the news broke out, but her conscience wouldn’t let her be.
She confirmed that his condition isn’t a secret to most Asaba resident and actors as many have seen him in different odd locations at old hours.
Iheme recounted an encounter she had with him at a restaurant where he almost beat her up for no reason.
“I have been trying to keep calm and mind my business since yesterday but my conscience wouldn’t let me, this disturbing video of Legendary Uncle Hanks Anuku surfaced on internet which is true, which is his reality @shangeorgefilms came out to debunk it instead of letting him get the help he needs atlast, instead of allowing people help him you cancelled a truth. Why na? Uncle Hanks condition is not a secret to any Asaba based actor neither is it to most Asaba resident as most people have seen him in different odd locations in abnormal state.
Personally I have had an encounter with him at 1side bar where I normally buy fish pepper soup whenever I’m in Asaba, this incident happened last month on the 27th of October, where he almost beat me up for no reason, he said some hurting words to me and @ujunwa_aninneji but we kept calm because he wasn’t himself, from that day I prayed he could get help and finally yesterday that God was about to answer that prayer, you stopped it for reasons best known to you. Drinking to stupor, walking around Asaba is not new. Pls this post is to plead to well meaning Nigerians. Hanks Anuku needs help”.
