BREAKING: Doctors Amputate Mr. Ibu’s Leg to Keep Him Alive After Seven Surgeries

One of the legs of actor John Okafor, aka Mr Ibu, has been amputated after seven surgeries so as to keep him alive.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that this was made known in a statement by the family of the actor.

Recall that in October, the veteran actor was ill and begged for financial assistance to aid in his treatment, which he reportedly got.

In the fresh statement shared on the actor’s Instagram page on Monday, it was made known that Mr Ibu had undergone seven successful surgeries, including the amputation of one leg.

The statement read, “Good afternoon, Nigerians. We want to appreciate everyone who has come through for our dad; saying we are grateful is an understatement, and only the good Lord can thank you all enough for every help you’ve rendered.

“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, at this stage, Daddy is still very delicate, 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 him during this period as soon as he’s stable.”
