Popular Nigerian actor and comedian, Charles Okocha also known as Igwe Tupac, has survived a ghastly car accident.
The Nollywood star took to his Instagram page on Monday, January 16 to pen a note of gratitude to God after surviving without a few injuries.
Charles shared pictures of him on a hospital bed as well as short video clips from the accident scene.
He revealed that the accident happened on Third Mainland bridge in Lagos on Sunday night, 15th January 2022.
In the video posted on the actor’s page, it looked like the car screeched off the road, as tyre marks could be seen on the tar.
He wrote: “Thankful for life. Was involved in a car accident on 3rd mainland bridge last night but GOD DID!!! We Asaaaaa still”.

CorrectNG reported earlier that a member of the National Youth Service Corps, (NYSC) identified as Roland Moses, has recounted how he escaped death in an auto crash and another potential one.
According to the graduate of Biology, the two incidents happened on December 23, 2022 while travelling from Enugu to Akwa Ibom State.
The native of Akwa Ibom, speaking in an interview, gave thanks to God for saving his life twice in one day.
Moses said; I was coming from Enugu (State) (and travelling) to Akwa Ibom State. I just wanted to come home and rest before returning for service. There was no vehicle to take me from Kogi to Akwa Ibom, so I had to get to Enugu first. When I arrived in Enugu State, I boarded a bus. The driver addressed us well. He said we would get to Akwa Ibom in five or six hours. He also told us that we might be stopped at checkpoints.
As we were moving along Enugu Road, I didn’t know what really happened. I knew the driver was not drunk; he was normal. As we were moving, there was a vehicle, a truck, in front of us and another one behind us. I was talking to someone on the phone and as soon as I ended the call, I decided to relax. But I saw that the driver was approaching the vehicle in front. I remember that the passenger beside him told him to apply the brakes. I didn’t know whether the brakes failed but all I heard was, “Jesus! Jesus!” Suddenly, our bus hit the vehicle in front.
Everybody came out except one man that sat in front. I think the shattered windscreen must have injured him. Later, a vehicle coming from Abuja got to where we were and the driver offered to give us a lift to Abia State. He took us to Abia State and I boarded another vehicle belonging to the same company. When I bought my ticket, I asked the driver about the condition of the vehicle and he said everything was okay. He said he was about to move and was even waiting for a few passengers.
