Legendary Nigerian actor and comedian Mr John Okafor aka Mr Ibu is in need of financial help. The 62-year-old comedian is bedridden with what he termed as a “strange and dangerous illness”.
In an Instagram video, Ibu said “Dear Good people of Nigerian, we are counting on your support at this point we need it the most Access Bank 1685687982 John Ikechukwu Okafor”
“ As I speak to you, I am still lying down in the hospital; the medical director of this hospital said that the best solution is, in case his new idea didn’t work, the best idea is to cut off my leg.”
He went on to say that he didn’t want his leg to be cut.
“Just see me, if they cut off my leg, where do I go from here? Please pray for me, talk to God Almighty, and I don’t want my legs to be cut off. Thank you so much. God bless you.”
The actor’s daughter also asked Nigerians to help her dad so as to receive treatment abroad.
“As a family, we want to appeal that at this point, people should come to Daddy’s aid and rescue; for the past two weeks, Daddy has been very down, so we took him to the hospital. I have been sorting the bills, thinking I can do it alone. We have been doing everything humanly possible; as a family, we felt it was something we could do on our own for him to be fine, but he is not getting any better.”
“He is not getting better; some days, it seems as if he is getting better; some days, it seems like it is getting worse. We are at one of the best private medical facilities in Lagos, and they want to refer us to another hospital because he is not getting better here.”
We wish him a quick recovery.
