On the reason for his recent hiatus from Nollywood
I was involved in an accident and was confirmed dead. After being in the hospital for two years I wanted to start acting again, but people told me to wait and allow the injuries heal.”
On how he survived in the mortuary for three days
He said, according to what he was told after the incident occurred, they were taken to the police station(as dead bodies). The next day they transferred them to a mortuary as dead bodies.
On how he came back to life?
As God in heaven would have it, there wasnt light in the mortuary for those three days. Sometimes, this skeletal power helps. I doubt I would be alive if there was light. Nevertheless, they told me the mortuary attendant who was cleaning noticed my body kept jerking occasionally. He ran away thinking I was a ghost, in fact, the whole hospital ran.
It was some young doctors(Youth Corp Members) who were brave enough to see the spirit.
