The Actor narrated how he was assaulted by thugs as he campaigned for his preferred candidate.

He made this known in an interview on Vanguard TV in Nigeria.

The celebrated Actor said: “Nigerian politics. Partially, I was involved o. The only thing different is that there were some situations where there was thuggery.

“Where we went to campaign, I received slaps from people that I don’t even know. But there was so much to slap because it didn’t mean anything to me.

“I collected like three or four slaps, free, from other boys. ‘Why did you come here? They asked, before I answered that question, gbosa! You won’t even like the sound of the slap because the people that are slapping are idiots because their slap is not human,” he recalled.

Touching on his long absence from the industry, Mr. Ibu said his comeback movie is currently underway, adding that he halted as a result of the election and transition period.
