One of the survivors of the tragicboat mishap, Actor T.C Okafor has recounted how he escaped death by the whiskers, saying “pouring Fanta and money into the Anam River saved his life.”

In a viral video yesterday, the actor revealed that the accident was due to the inexperience of the person steering the boat.

According to him, while they were all on board, only a few passengers wore life jackets.

During the journey, Okafor said he poured Fanta into the river and tossed naira notes and some crumbs from his snack into the river to appease the gods of the river.

He also dashed some money to children who were playing around the river before they commenced the journey.

Okafor also recalled how Jnr Pope queried his actions, and he explained to him that he was rendering obeisance to the river gods, beseeching for safe passage, hence his unconventional rituals.
