Mr Ibu’s family reacts to reports of actor’s 2nd leg amputation



Veteran actor, John Ikechukwu Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu’s family has finally spoken up amid erroneous claims of the seasoned entertainer’s two legs being amputated.

A statement by Mr Ibu’s son, Valentine Okafor shared on the actor’s official Instagram page a few hours ago sought to clarify the misconceptions spreading like wildfire.

It was reiterated that Mr Ibu only had a second surgery on the leg he had the initial one to further correct some underlying issues.

Furthermore, it was revealed that the reason Mr Ibu hasn’t been flown abroad is because the doctors have tagged him as ‘Not Fit To Fly. ‘

The statement reads:

“We wish to Express our sincere gratitude to well meaning Nigerians and the general public for your immense contributions, physically, spiritually and most above all financially on getting our daddy Mr John Okafor (Mr Ibu) back on his feet again.

We wish to correct some misconceptions making rounds on social media concerning the current state of our father’s health.

First we will like to state that our daddy wasn’t amputated on both legs but only one. The first amputation didn’t completely correct his health predicament so the doctors had to go ahead to amputate same leg further to ensure we didn’t loose him.

Daddy’s cause of sickness is also not diabetes but he’s had constant clotting of the blood in his leg ( diseased blood vessels) and other health challenges posing risk to his life , therefore the need for the amputation.

Lastly, the only reason why the family has not flown him out of the country till date is cause the doctors have tagged him “Not Fit to Fly”.. This tag has made it extremely impossible to get him out of the country for advanced treatment as no airline will fly him.. Daddy is currently admitted at one of the biggest and best hospital we’ve got in Nigeria as of today and the hospital has availed him a pool of very astute professionals.

As Daddy is recuperating we urge his friends, colleagues, fans and Nigerians at large to keep him in thier prayers and peddle down on unconfirmed reports concerning our dad’s health..

Thank you Nigerians you all have been very supportive this period. God bless you all

Valatine Okafor
On behalf of the Family….”
