Early Sunday morning a hacker used the news anchor Garang John’s Facebook account to announce his false death.

The Facebook post shocked Garang’s fans and family who weren’t aware of the hacking, but it was later confirmed by family members and colleagues that the celebrated journalist is well and alive.

Early last week the journalist announced that his Facebook account was hacked by his enemies. His relationship was changed from “married” to “in relationship”. Garang married former singer Paleki last year.

Garang’s colleague at SSBC Gore Anthony has also confirmed the journalist is well and alive
