Nollywood comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, had denied begging members of the public for funds.
He made the clarification in an interview from his sickbed. Okafor said, “I have never asked anyone to beg people for money on my behalf. It is not as critical as they are talking now. They should stop.
He added, “If I want to die, I will let you know, since you are interested.”
said he wasn’t poisoned in the village but in Abuja at an entertainment event. He also disclosed that he is recuperating.
Mr Ibu 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.
“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.”
