The founder and Chairman of Orange Drugs Limited, Chief Tony Ezenna, is alive and well, the DAILY VENDOR authoritatively gathered.
On Sunday, rumours hovered around that the billionaire businessman had died from complications arising from COVID-19.
However, in a statement obtained by this newspaper, signed by Ingram Osigwe, the media adviser of Orange Group, the death rumours is the “handwork of mischief makers” as the Ikenga 1 of Akokwa is hale and hearty.
The statement partly read:
“This is to appeal to the general public to disregard the rumour about the death of Tony Ezenna, Chairman of Orange Group.”
“The rumour is malicious and the handwork of mischief makers as the Ikenga Akokwa is neither sick nor dead.”
“Investigations are ongoing to unravel the source of this wicked rumour with the view to bringing the culprit(s) to book.”
“Ezenna wishes to assure his friends, family and associates that he is hale and hearty.”
