Also, in May 2022, the comic actor again alleged that he was poisoned for the third time.

In an interview with Vanguard, Okafor disclosed that he was already “seeing people on the other side” but God brought him back to life. Watch the interview HERE.

He said: “My illness was 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 were going to do. 

“I said ‘Whatever you are going to do, please, do it, let me live because if I die the enemies will laugh'. And then the doctors said ‘Okay, there's no problem'.

Meanwhile, several notable Nollywood figures have posted lighted candles, mourning the actor.
