Comic actor, Mr Ibu denies supporting President Buhari on the arrest of judges

Few days ago, there were media reports quoting comic actor, John Okafor aka Mr Ibu as saying he is in support of President Buhari on the recent arrest of some judges accused of corrupt practices. Ibu was quoted as saying;
“I will support Buhari for his action against Nigeria Judiciary. When issue of Buhari’s certificate came up, No judge was serious to prosecute Buhari, when IPOB members were killed, no judge talked about it, when Nnamdi Kanu was guiltless, no judge talked about it,
When Dasuki was granted Bail even in ECOWAS Court, no Judge talked about it, when Shitte Muslims were killed in Kaduna, no judge talked about it, what about the killings in Nimbo and Agatu? No judge talked about it. Margaret was killed in kano while preaching, no judge talked about it, all the arrested Boko Haram members where released by Buhari, No judge talked about it"
However speaking exclusively to LIB, Mr Ibu denied the report, saying he never made such comment
"I am an actor. I do movies for everybody to watch in Nigeria. I don’t talk politics and the level of the politics we are talking about here that has to do with the president and the judges; that I don’t know anything about and I don’t even think I am going to add anything to it. I did not never said a word. I have never granted an interview with regards to it because I don’t know anything about that. So anybody that states that ‘I said,’ should be ready to bear the curse because I did not grant an interview on that. I know very well that some set of people have decided to engage in character assassination, just to mar my identity but i know that God in heaven will judge them"he said
