Mr. Ibu stated this in an interview he granted Punch in which he blamed Lagos State University Teaching Hospital, LUTH, for his son’s death in 2011.

He said a terrible urgings of homicidal thoughts invaded him when a doctor in LUTH despite that one of the contributory factors to his son’s death was power failure in the hospital, and a staff’s absence from duty, wanted him to leave his son’s remains for practical for medical students.

‘When my son eventually died one of the doctors came to me and, without even sympathising with me, asked if I could release my boy’s corpse to him so that they could cut it open and use it to teach other medical students. In that moment, I felt like committing murder for the first time in my life,” the comic actor told the paper.
