Veteran comedian, Julius Agwu, and his wife, Ibiere, have shared the tormenting experience they endured during the brain tumor crisis that befell the 43-year-old comedian.
He revealed in an interview with Inspaya TV that he considered committing suicide at a point when he lost all hope. “I started looking for my property documents to give to my wife. One day when they were not home, I almost committed suicide,” he said.
He added that he did not even have any memory of him having seizures and slipping into a coma but that it was the grace of God that sustained him. He also revealed that it was when he visited an American hospital, that it was discovered he had three tumours in his brain with one that was the size of a gulf ball.
“Satan works in mysterious ways, God works in miraculous ways, both of them are ‘Mi’ ‘My’ but one is more mier than the other… All i remember was I woke up in the hospital and heard the story of my being in coma. I lost my memory,” he added.
Stating her thoughts at the time, Ibiere said that she feared for her husband’s life as he was almost taken to a mortuary. “So now I am going to be a widow, how do I manage with these children?” she feared.
