Popular Nigerian Veteran and Nollywood actor, John Okafor who is popularly known as Mr. Ibu, has revealed how he nearly lost his life after one of his workers beat him up and also poisoned him during an event in Anambra State.
The Actor During an interview with Nigezie Tv, expressed his gratitude to God as he said that if not for him, he would have been a dead man. Mr. Ibu explained that he doesn’t drink alcohol but his stomach grew very big after he was poisoned by his staff,
In his words, he said: “If not for God Almighty, I would have been a story perpetuated by people who don’t love me. I don’t take Alcohol up till now. Some people say I don’t take Alcohol yet my stomach is big, The belly is an idi*t”
“It was after they gave me that poison. It was bigger than this before. If you had seen it, it was like a foam. I took medicine and it began to come down. Before I wasn’t able to see my legs”.
“They took me to Nnewi, saying we had a show. They held me there and beat me up. They beat me and then inserted poison in my mouth and ran away, leaving me there. It was my boys and dancers that came and carried me home. It was in Enugu that I woke up. God said no, you are not going yet“.
“Here in my office, they brought the first poison, I took it. I was falling around and nobody came to ask. Even the workers did not enter here even though they were hearing me fall around. I vomited something in my bathroom”.
“They gave me the second one, The people that gave me are the people working with me. I swallowed another one unknowingly because I never suspected them until when God opened my eyes”.
“They paid them and gave them enough money to make sure they eliminate me. All these plans are from Enugu, my townspeople and age grades that are surprised that I can own some things, build some houses, buy a house in Lagos. They asked them to go and kill me”.
Mr. Ibu noted that he has left the case for God to judge.
