She went on to question why people put up these fake death reports about her. She recounted how it left her and the kids devastated when a fake death report was made about her in 2013.
"It breaks my spirit that we are like show birds, pretty in a cage but with no freedom. Solely for entertainment. Please let us fly. Please let us live.
I remember in 2013 just like right now, an article was published saying I had died. This exact picture and write up was trending on social media and was on google. It was a regular beautiful day for me till I started receiving so many alarming calls from my family, friends and acquaintances. My children and I were greatly and negatively impacted by that article. And again today the same thing!! July 27 2020! I cried bitterly because I am tired! Tired of being fake news, tired of being ‘dead’ when I am alive, tired of hiding and living in fear!!"
She wondered if the people sharing these reports have no idea that what they are doing is hurtful and traumatising. Do you have no conscience?" she queried.
Mrs Udokwu begged them to stop hurting her family, adding that she is not dead and will live up to a hundred years.
