Actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, says he is now usually skeptical when around new faces.

Recall that the actor was poisoned several times.

In an interview with Sunday Scoopthe actor said: “Nowadays I am mostly skeptical because I later found out it was someone I had helped in the past (who poisoned me).”

Okafor, who is still being treated in Abuja because of the poison in his system, added: “Had it not been for God, the outcome would have been bad. As I speak to you now, I am still being treated somewhere in Guzape, Abuja.

The actor also instructed the government to do more to keep filmmakers safe. He said: “I expect the federal government to act on this. Like it or not, we (actors) serve the government. The movies we make are in the interest of the general public. If the government wants us better protect, you can.”
