I’m full-blooded Nigerian, not from Gabon – Zack Orji

NOLLYWOOD veteran actor Zack Orji has denied claims that he is from Gabon, a neighbouring African country.
This is following a podcast video that went viral on Monday.
The video appeared to show the actor revealing that he was born in Gabon, which would make him a citizen of the Central African nation
According to Orji, his father’s job required him to travel extensively to various countries, resulting in Zack’s birth occurring in Gabon.
However, Orji has issued a strong disclaimer, affirming his Nigerian heritage and rejecting the fact that he is from Gabon.
On Tuesday, Orji said, “Not long ago, they said I was dead, and, by God’s grace and mercy, it eventually turned out to be a lie from the pit of hell. Now, another lie from the pit of hell has emerged, claiming that I said, “I’m from Gabon, I’m not a Nigerian. I hereby issue a disclaimer dissociating myself from that lie. I am a full-blooded Nigerian, both of my parents are Nigerians. I am from Enugu State, the Coal City State. I am proudly Nigerian, and I am equally proud of my Nigerian heritage. God almighty will deal with whoever originated that lie as he dims (sic) fit.”
