Nollywood actor, John Okafor popularly known as Mr Ibu who is currently in the hospital has disclosed that he got poisoned again but he’s recuperating.
Speaking out for the first time following his hospitalization, Ibu said he was poisoned for the third time in about three years.
He made this known while speaking with Saturday Beats from his hospital bed.
He said, “I just got poisoned again. It seems my enemies are using me to rehearse (their powers). This time, I wasn’t poisoned in the village. I was poisoned in Abuja last week at an entertainment event. I really cannot explain how I was poisoned because it was a gathering of people, though it was not a big event.”
Sounding weak, the actor assured the public that he was recuperating. He said, “I am recuperating although I have neither worked out nor driven since I got ill. However, I intend to take a walk this (Friday) evening, because I am hopeful that I would get better. I am eating well now, and I’m prepared to go back on set any moment from now.”
Mr Ibu blasted those soliciting for funds on his behalf without his consent. He added, “Some people have sold me. They have not heard from me and all they want to do is ‘sell me’. But, their plans won’t work because God has raised me up. I am not begging anybody for money”.
This online platform recalls that Mr Ibu’s wife called on Nigerians to pray for her husband.
In a video shared on her Instagram page, Mr Ibu’s wife said her husband’s Instagram account had been hacked, and the suspect has been extorting money from some of the actor’s friends and colleagues.
She also said the husband has also lost his bank account details, and anyone who wishes to offer help to the ailing actor should contact her or come to the hospital where he is receiving treatment.
Mr Ibu’s wife added that Nigerians should pray for her husband, who is still in the hospital and irrespective of their situation, God is the greatest in everything.
Mr Ibu, who was also able to say a few words said he is fine and not in any critical conditions widely speculated, and if he wants to die, he will let the public know.
