In the video, it seemed like the actor admitted to being born in Gabon, which would make him a citizen of the Central African country.

Orji explained that his father’s profession involved frequent travel to different nations, leading to his birth in Gabon.

Nevertheless, Orji has firmly stated that he is of Nigerian descent and refutes any claims of being from Gabon.

In a statement sent to PUNCH Online 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 fit.”
