Renowned Nollywood actor John Okafor, often known as Mr. Ibu, had one of his legs amputated to improve his chances of recovery.
In a message posted on Monday on his verified Instagram profile, Mr. Ibu’s daughter said that the actor, who is known for his comedy roles, had undergone seven successful surgeries in one day, including the amputation of his leg.
As of 1 p.m. today, Mr Ibu had seven successful surgeries, but in order to preserve his life and enhance his chances of recovery, one of his legs had to be amputated. All of us have found it challenging to accept this change as the new normal that Daddy needs to survive.
“Please we are still soliciting for support from well-meaning Nigerians,” the statement read in part.
The actor’s family had disclosed that his legs may be amputated over undisclosed ailment last month
