Nollywood Actor Igwe Tupac has been through the roughest weeks.
The Nollywood star who was shot by a drunken Policeman (isn’t it about time the Government did something about these guys?) late last December, reportedly almost died even after a successful surgery.
You may remember that we exclusively broke the news of how the Actor was doing after he was shot, however things took another turn even after he was treated.
According to reports, Igwe Tupac was rushed to the Hospital by his friends after he was shot. He was lucky to have survived because the other person who was hit by the trigger, died immediately.
At the Hospital (Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital), the medical personnel reportedly took their time to attend to the star and when they eventually did, used the wrong medical equipment which caused Igwe Tupac’s stomach to burst open after surgery.
Yes, his stomach allegedly burst open and he had to use his own hands to hold his intestines himself (thank goodness for the courage he had even through what must have been excruciating pain) while the medical staff took their time to attend to him.
His friend James Louis Okoye, reportedly helped saved the Actor’s life when he did everything within his power to ensure the star got the medical attention he so deserved.
At least now we can get to see the star’s works on the screens again.
Get well soon, Charles “Igwe Tupac” Okocha!
