Jasmine Okafor has confirmed that veteran actor, John Okafor aka Mr Ibu’s leg has been amputated.
Jasmine, the daughter of the actor made the confirmation on Monday.
Her confirmation comes after Social media activist, Very Dark Man had disclosed that the veteran’s leg had been amputated.
He revealed that the actor’s family, friends, and close ones all betrayed him as they took advantage of the ailing actor and abandoned him when he needed their help.
According to him, he just finished speaking with his family, who disclosed to him that the actor’s leg had been amputated.
Jasmine shared the sad news.
“Good afternoon, Nigerians…
We want to appreciate everyone who has come through for our dad, saying we are grateful is an understatement and only the good Lord can thank you all enough for every help you’ve rendered.
As of 1 p.m., noon today, Daddy has gone through 7 successful surgeries but to keep him alive and increase his chances of recovery one of his legs had to be amputated.. This development has been hard on us all but we’ve had to accept it as Daddy’s new reality to keep him alive.
Please we are still soliciting support from well-meaning Nigerians as this stage Daddy is still one very delicate one and he needs all the help he can get.
Thank you, everyone, the Okafor family is grateful and we don’t take you for granted. In due time Daddy will personally acknowledge everyone who supported him during this period as soon as he’s stable!
