Bullet Wounds: Nollywood Actor Recalls Terrible Encounter With Mobile Policeman

Nollywood actor, Charles Okocha who was hit by bullets from a mobile
policeman’s gun at a wedding in Nnewi, Anambra State has explained his horrible
experience and the grace God has had on him to keep him alive. It’s indeed a
terrible experience no one will ever pray for. Here’s what he told Saturday
“I stepped out of the wedding venue to receive a call and
then walked into a bunch of fans that made some complimentary remarks. As I
moved closer to acknowledge their love for me, a policeman who was around also
walked to where we were standing and said that my movies always made him happy.
He said as a mark of appreciation of my works and the respect he had for me, he
would shoot into the air as a form of salute, even though I didn’t fancy the
“The guy was very drunk and so when he corked his gun to
shoot, it fell from his hand. Unfortunately, the gun had been programmed to
shoot rapidly and sporadically. I was very close to him and before the gun
dropped some bullets had hit me. I had to hold my intestine which was already
out with my hands. It was a very horrifying experience. I did not get to the
hospital till after an hour even with the way I was bleeding profusely.

“At the hospital, doctors brought out five bullets from my
body. There was a bullet that was removed from my leg and I bless God that the
bullet did not hit my bone because it could have been crippled. Three major
surgeries have left me performed on me so far.

“Last week, after the stitches had been removed and I was
due for discharge, my stomach suddenly burst open again, exposing all of my
intestines. I was quickly rushed back into the theatre and I’ve been in the
hospital ever since. It is a miracle that I am still alive,” he said.
