Actor Van Vicker has narrated how he was almost killed in Liberia numerous times before he relocated to Ghana.
Speaking on GTV’s Breakfast show, Van opened up about a scary time in his life before moving to Ghana for safety.
According to Van, around 1990/91, when he was about 13 to 14 year, his family was staying in Liberia, where his mother partially hails from.
It was also around the time of the Liberian Civil War.
Recounting the horror, Vicker says he remembers nearly being killed at least six times within four-months.
Those incidents convinced his mother to finally relocate to Ghana.
Vicker was relating his experiences to the ongoing takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban.
“I always get confused whether it was 90 or 91, for some reason, I always get it mixed up but either way, I should be right one way or the other. I think it was in 1991 November when we escaped from the war in Liberia and when I say, I use the war to invoke some kind of resilience and I count my blessings, it just means that within a span of about just three-four months, I almost got killed about six times.
“So, for me, when I see things like what is happening in Afghanistan, it just brings back those memories, gets me very sentimental, and I just count my blessings every day,” he said.
