I don’t woo women, they Chase Me – Mr. Ibu

Okafor has, so far, been able to prove to his fans that he does not only live by making other people to laugh away their sorrows; he is also humour personified.
But the actor, in an interview with our correspondent, also reveals that despite his commitment to making people to laugh, he has had cause to be unhappy, even bitter, on some occasions.

On one of such, Okafor had an axe to grind with the Lagos University Teaching Hospital, Idi-Araba. He was so bitter that he almost instituted a court action against the management of the hospital.
Recounting what happened, he says, “The matter was actually between the Paediatric Department of the hospital and me.

It was in 2011. My wife and our two-year-old son had been kidnapped. After I paid the ransom demanded and they were released by the kidnappers, I returned to Lagos from Enugu.
“Then on January 18, 2011, my son fell ill. He was diagnosed with inflammation of the liver. The hospital suggested that he should be scanned.

At the same time, I was informed that I could take my son out of the hospital to get the scan done elsewhere.
But the same people later declined, saying that everything had to be done in the hospital because he was too weak to be taken outside.
