During an interview with Nigezie Tv, Mr Ibu expressed his gratitude to God as he mentioned that if not for him, he would have been a dead man.
The veteran actor explained that he doesn’t drink alcohol, and he only eats a little portion of food but his stomach grew very big after he was poisoned by his staff,
According to Mr Ibu, the poison made his stomach big to the extent that he couldn’t even see his legs, but constant medication helped him to lose some of his belly fat.
Recounting the near-death experience, the movie star said he was tricked into going to Nnewi, Anambra state, but when he got there, he was beaten to a pulp and given poison to drink.
Mr. Ibu who believes that his death was orchestrated by hiss people in Enugu State, said many people did not believe he would survive the incident after he was rescued by his dancers.
“If not for God Almighty, I would have been a story perpetrated by people who don’t love me,” he said.
“I don’t take Alcohol up till now. Some people say I don’t take Alcohol yet my stomach is big, The belly is an idiot. It was after they gave me that poison. It was bigger than this before. If you had seen it, it was like a foam. I took medicine and it began to come down. Before I wasn’t able to see my legs.
“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 vomitted 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.”
The veteran actor, however, noted that he has left the case for God to judge.
