Popular socialiate, Charly Boy Oputa who lost his father on the 4th of May, this year, has revealed the shock he felt when he heard his father was no more, he narrated how it happened.
"He was in the village when he was hit by stroke on February 14, 2014. At about 3: 30pm, I got a call from one of his aides informing me of what had happened. It was a Friday; one of my daughters had just come back from the US a few days before. So, I sent her and my brother immediately to Owerri to assess the situation till I get myself together and arrive on Monday.
I didn't sleep from Friday to Monday morning. I was in a trance; the worse seized my mind. I cried when I was alone, in my household it was as if he had already passed, my father had never been sick, never! It was the most painful time in my life, the thought of losing my father, my best friend, was too much to deal with. But typical of me, by Monday as I headed to the airport to catch the flight to Owerri, I was mentally ready for the worst. By the time I saw my father in the hospital, I was devastated, it took all the courage to hold back the tears.
Then I knew it was down hill from there. I knew it was a matter of time, but I was ever determined to do all I could for my best friend. Since childhood I have always had that sharp instinct, intuition or premonition about things and people. I should have been dead long time ago, living the kind of life I had once lived, but I have survived because of this gift from God" he said. source
