Nollywood actor and comedian, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has recounted the terrible illness that kept him out of the screen for about three years.
It can be recalled that in 2019, Mr. Ibu alleged that his kinsmen paid some of his domestic workers to poison him because of his successful career.
In May 2022, the comedian again came out to report a third attempt at his life through poison.

Speaking in a recent interview with newsmen, Ibu disclosed that he was already attempting to cross Rubicon but God brought him back to life.
He said, “My illness was actually perpetrated by people that hate me. They did what they did to me. Later, I was taken to the hospital. The doctors are prophets. So, they went into my system and they told me what was wrong and what they are going to do. I said ‘Whatever you are going to do, please, do it, let me live because if I die like this the enemies will laugh’. And then the doctors said ‘Okay, there’s no problem’.

“At the time, I didn’t know what happened. I left! So, whatever I was saying they recorded it. I was saying something like somebody who is going mad. I wasn’t actually seeing anybody. But on the other side where I was at that time, I was seeing some dead people.. God brought me back.”
The actor stressed that the illness taught him a “big lesson”, adding that he is still alive owing to the grace of God.
