Julius Agwu has revealed that while in a state of coma, he encountered his late father who told him to “go back”.
The comedian, actor and singer successfully underwent a procedure that led to the removal of three tumors from his brain in 2015.
In an interview with Inspaya, Agwu said the experience shook him and his family.
He said he once came close to committing suicide and described his new lease of life as a “second chance”.
Agwu said: “I’m a living testimony of God’s testimony. I remember my father who died in 2002 telling me to go back. What I remember was the fact that woke up in the hospital and heard the story of being in coma. I lost my memory.”
“I started looking for my properties, documents and was giving them to my wife. One day, they were not home and I almost committed suicide.”
Agwu’s wife, Ibiere, who was by his side throughout the entire process, shared the experience of his first seizure.
“I was in the room with him when the first seizure happened. On the way to the hospital, the seizure came again and I started praying.
“It got to a point where everything just stopped. At a point, the doctor started praying with me. After a while, he moved his hand,” she said.
Julius and Ibiere Agwu have two children and have been married for almost nine years.
