Many in the entertainment industry have reacted and called for help. Others as well have had different opinions.
One person in particular, Shan George debunks the speculations.
Shan George claims Hanks is doing fine.
However, popular Nollywood actress, Iheme Nancy has confirmed the deteriorating mental of Hanks.
According to Nancy, the majority of Asaba residents and actors are aware of Hanks’ condition. She also recounted an encounter with him at a restaurant where he almost beat her up for no reason.
“I have been trying to keep calm and mind my business since yesterday but my conscience wouldn’t let me, this disturbing video of Legendary Uncle Hanks Anuku surfaced on the internet which is true, which is his reality @shangeorgefilms came out to debunk it instead of letting him get the help he needs atlast, instead of allowing people help him you cancelled a truth. Why na? Uncle Hanks condition is not a secret to any Asaba based actor neither is it to most Asaba resident as most people have seen him in different odd locations in abnormal state.
Personally I have had an encounter with him at 1side bar where I normally buy fish pepper soup whenever I’m in Asaba, this incident happened last month on the 27th of October, where he almost beat me up for no reason, he said some hurting words to me and @ujunwa_aninneji but we kept calm because he wasn’t himself, from that day I prayed he could get help and finally yesterday that God was about to answer that prayer, you stopped it for reasons best known to you. Drinking to stupor, walking around Asaba is not new. Pls this post is to plead to well meaning Nigerians. Hanks Anuku needs help”.
