In an interview with Channels TV on Sunday, Orji said that he was in a coma for five and a half hours.

“I can only thank God that I am still alive today because I passed out. “I was out for about five and a half hours before help arrived,” he explained.

Orji added that his colleagues Benedict Johnson and Labista raced to his residence and “lifted me on their shoulders from the second floor to the ground floor and took me to the National Hospital”.

He said the first surgery was performed on January 1st but a month later, after scans revealed a residual blood clot, he underwent a second surgery.

He said, “Before the surgery, I couldn’t recognise people. Some of the people who came to the hospital to see me, I didn’t even know that they came and we were talking but I couldn’t remember them. I was my wife who told me those who came.

“But immediately after the surgery, the first question I asked was, ‘What day are we today?’ My wife said new year day and I started wishing everybody happy new year. She said that was when she knew that I am back.”
