Mr. Ibu Recounts Near-Death Experience
Veteran Nollywood actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu, has revealed details about his prolonged absence from the limelight due to illness. In 2019, he alleged that he was poisoned by those envious of his successful career.
“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 told me what was wrong and what they would 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’. He revealed this in a recent interview.
Mr. Ibu disclosed that he had experienced a near-death encounter and had even begun seeing people on the “other side”. However, he expressed gratitude to God for restoring him to good health.
“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.”
In addition, Okafor mentioned that his enemies were happy about his sickness and expected him to die, but God intervened and saved him.
He concluded by reflecting on the valuable lesson he learned from his ordeal, expressing surprise and gratitude for still being alive.
