In March 2022, Mr Ibu revealed in an interview with Premium Times that his ‘Village People’ attempted to kill him twice through poison.

In local Nigerian parlance, “Village People” refers to evil kinsmen, witches, and sorcerers who reside in the village and ‘hinder’ an individual’s progress.

He had been hospitalised and received treatment at Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre Abuja. He was later discharged from the hospital.

Setting the records straight, Mr Ibu explained how he battled what he described as an unknown ailment.

He said, “it’s a long story because the sickness didn’t start today, all these while we’ve been running around, going from here to there, from one diagnosis to another, mentioned different names of sicknesses, I was even tired of the results, how could all these aliments be in one person’s body.”
