Liberian-born Ghanaian actor, producer and family man, Van Vicker has recounted the worst and terrifying moments of his life on live television.
Speaking to Valerie Danso on The Breaktfast Show on GTV, Van Vicker revealed that he nearly got killed in Libera six times within four months before his and his family relocated to Ghana.
According to him, around the time Liberia was experiencing civil war in 1990 to 1991 when he was about 13 or 14 years, his family were living in Liberia where his mum hails from partially.
Van Vicker shared this experience of his life in reaction to the Taliban take over in Afghanistan that have seen many losing their lives and others fleeing the country over fears of being killed.
He wrote; “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.
