Veteran Nollywood actor and comedian, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has recounted how he almost died after he was poisoned by his staff.
In the interview with Nigezie, Ibu who is also known for his very big stomach disclosed that he does not take alcohol and that he eats very little but that his belly started to grow very big after he was poisoned.
The film star said he was tricked into going to Nnewi, Anambra state but when he got there, he was beaten to a pulp and given poison to drink.
According to the film star, his staff members heard him falling around in his office but did not come to help because they were the ones responsible.
According to him, he also took their poison a second time because he never suspected them until God opened his eyes.
Speaking further, the actor who was very grateful to be alive said if not for God, he would have been a story.
In his words;
“If not for God Almighty, I would have been a story perpetrated 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 idiot. 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.” he said
