Veteran Nollywood actor and comedian, Mr Ibu, recently got social media buzzing after his revelation about his close shave with death on different occasions.
The film star recounted how he was poisoned by members of his staff and how they were paid to eliminate him perhaps because of envy.
In the interview with Nigezie, Ibu who is also known for his very big stomach disclosed that he does not take alcohol and that he eats very little but that his belly started to grow very big after he was poisoned.
The actor said that the belly eventually started to reduce after he took medicine and he was finally able to see his legs again.
Speaking further, the actor who was very grateful to be alive said if not for God, he would have been a story.
According to the film star, his staff members heard him falling around in his office but did not come to help because they were the ones responsible.
According to him, he also took their poison a second time because he never suspected them until God opened his eyes.
Mr Ibu said members of his staff had been paid handsomely to eliminate him probably because he was doing well with himself seeing as he built a house in his village and bought another in Lagos.
