One of the survivors of the boat mishap that claimed the life of popular actor Junior Pope, TC Okafor has relieved the actor’s last moments.

Okafor also disclosed the cause of the accident.

Four actors, including Junior Pope, died when their boat capsized on the Anam River in Anambra state while returning from a movie location.

Okafor said one of the reasons the boat capsized was because the person that sailed the boat lacked experience.

He recalled how he threw some naira notes and spilt Fanta into the river as a way of averting any form of danger.

He also said that even though everyone was on board, some people were wearing life jackets and some were not.

Okafor remembered Junior Pope’s perplexed question about what he was doing, to which he replied that he was worshipping the river gods and pleading for safe passage.

Speaking during an Instagram Live session, Okafor said: “Before I entered the boat, the first thing Junior Pope asked me was ‘What are you doing?’. And I said I was observing the water people. I can’t pass without sharing something. I have given them Fanta, so I don’t want anything bad to happen to me. Junior Pope agreed.

“While we were going, the boat guy was wearing an earpiece, and Junior Pope was doing a video, I saw a small canoe with fishermen in front and due to his lack of experience, he drove right into the last point of the canoe and we somersaulted.”
