In a video trending online, popular Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, alias ‘Mr Ibu’, recounts his personal staff poisoned him.

The comic actor revealed that if not for God almighty, he would have been a story because the poison battled with his life and he had a near death experience.

“I couldn’t wake-up until they took me home after they have declared me dead and put cotton wool in my nose, but I thank God, if not him, I would have been a story”

“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


Speaking further, the actor said;“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 towns people and age grades that are surprised that I can own some things, build some houses, buy house in Lagos. They asked them to go and kill me.”
