BREAKING: Nigerian Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku reportedly runs mad; cut on camera begging money on a busy road in Asaba

The renowned Nollywood actor Hanks Anuku’s health is being looked at, according to the Actors Guild of Nigeria.

On Monday, a video showing the formerly famous actor looking disheveled and begging for money in Asaba went viral online, sparking reactions among Nigerians.

Shan George, an actress and director, refuted the footage by claiming that the actor was on a movie set. With pictures of him taken on the alleged film set, she supported her story.

It’s interesting to note that a similar video showing him begging for alms from bus passengers on a busy road in Benin went viral.

The films remind him of his late colleague Ernest Asuzu, who was captured in January 2020 beseeching for cash and food on the streets of Oke-Afa in Isolo, Lagos.

62-year-old Hanks, the older sibling of Rita Anuku, Miss Nigeria 1986, who passed away in 2015, ruled Nollywood from the late 1990s until 2014, when he moved to Ghana.

In 2010, he was appointed a special advisor on tourism and entertainment by the former governor of Delta State, Emmanuel Uduaghan, a position he held for a brief period of time.

After that, he made headlines when it was said that the late prophet TB Joshua healed him of his drunkenness and mental disorders; he then relocated to Ghana.

The Actors Guild president Emeka Rollas said that his staff was “on top of the problem” in an interview with PREMIUM TIMES on Wednesday.

Regarding both incidents, Mr Rollas said the Guild is trying to ascertain the authenticity of the videos.

“There’s nothing I can say from the official point of view at the moment, but we have sent out the Guild Chairman of Edo and Delta States first to locate where he is, whether he’s filming and all of that.

“It’s only when we can get that information then we can say something officially. For now, we have no information. Nobody seems to know where he is. I believe it is not something serious,” he said.
