Why Mr. Ibu’s Leg Was Amputated As Family Solicit For More Support
Ngerian comic actor, John Okafor, who is known popularly as Mr Ibu, has had one of his legs amputated.
The actor who was critically ill had called for financial support from Nigerians, about three weeks ago.
However, a statement issued by his family on Monday said that the actor underwent seven successful surgeries, and one of his legs had to be amputated.
The family also appreciated Nigerians for their support, while soliciting for more, saying they are grateful, and “only the good Lord can thank you all enough for every help you’ve rendered”.
Revealing why the actor’s leg had to be amputated, the family representative statement read, “As of 1 pm, 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 them during this period as soon as he’s stable!
