Bedridden Nollywood actor John Okafor, often known as Mr Ibu, is currently embroiled in “two-font wars.”
The actor, who is now suffering a disease, had his leg amputated. Now, the comic actor is fighting to recuperate swiftly so that he may continue to do what he does best: make his fans laugh.
Another recent battle that has come to light is a family feud as the thespian’s wife, Stella Maris Okafor, has alleged that his adopted daughter, Jazmine, has hijacked the money donated by good-willing Nigerians to the actor.
Taking to her Instagram account, Stella while reacting to some accusations debunked a rumour which stated that she demanded money to buy a car with funds donated for Mr Ibu’s upkeep.
She also fingered Jazmine as the orchestrator of the rumour. While clearing the air, Stella noted that she does not have access to the humour merchant’s main bank account.
In a lengthy post, the actor’s wife wrote in part, “Recently, there have been some malicious lies being peddled against me on social media as masterminded by Jazmine Chioma Okeke who wants to make me an outsider in my own home but God forbid. I will address Jazmine’s excessive interference in my family affairs and other related matters when the time is right. For now, my husband’s health is most important to me
“The N1m donation they talked about was paid into my account on my husband’s instruction (and in his presence) to offset some bills at the home front. I don’t understand why Jazmine, a stranger should be dragging me over my family matter.
She further said, “I do not have access to the main Access bank account where people make donations. It is being secretly controlled by Jazmine yet she is cooking up all kinds of lies and propaganda against me to keep absolute control of that account. How she manipulated her way and took control of that account is a story for another day.”
It would be recalled Mr Ibu cried out for financial assistance over his health challenges, Nigerians listened and made series of donations. Ibu successful went through over 7 surgeries before one of his legs was amputated to save his life.
