Mr. Ibu’s Wife, Stella Maris, Daughter Disagree Over Donations, Actor Son Counter’s Stepmom
Stella Maris, the spouse of the ailing actor John Okafor, widely known as Mr Ibu, has accused Jasmine, the actor’s adopted daughter, of taking over the funds allocated for his medical procedure.
Recall that in October, Mr Ibu appealed to the public for assistance in dealing with an undisclosed illness.
Despite undergoing seven surgeries, one of his legs was amputated last week.
However, on Monday, Stella Maris, in a post on her Instagram page, claimed that Jasmine had covertly assumed control of the bank account designated for donations.
Additionally, she responded to Jasmine’s assertion that she had received ₦1 million for personal use.
Stella Maris clarified, “The ₦1 million donation that I received was paid into my account in the presence of my husband to offset some bills at the home front. I don’t understand why Jasmine, a complete stranger, should be dragging me over my family matters.
I don’t have access to the main Bank account where people make donations. It is secretly being controlled by Jasmine yet she is cooking up all kinds of lies against me in order to keep absolute control of that account. How she manipulated her way and took control of the account is a story for another day”.
