Stella Maris, wife of the Comic Nollywood actor John Okafor, otherwise known as Mr Ibu, has alleged that the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), did not support her husband at all.
She accused them of exploiting her ailing husband for the sake of chasing clout.
In the viral clip shared online on Saturday, October 21, Ibu’s wife slammed AGN for lying about helping her husband and also noted that she was unhappy with how the AGN was using her husband.
Her allegation comes after the guild disclosed it has been offering support to Mr. Ibu, even before the public disclosure of his health status.
This was made known by the guild’s Director Of Communications, Kate Henshaw, in a video shared on her Instagram account on Friday.
The actress said the guild has remained committed to supporting its members in times of need, especially in regards to health concerns.
It would be recalled that Mr Ibu shared a video announcing to his fans that he has been diagnosed with an illness that could cost him his leg on Wednesday.
In the video, the actor pleaded for assistance from the general public – a move that stirred reactions from some Nigerians who questioned what the Nollywood industry is doing to help its actors.
Consequently, it was gathered that, former Senate President, Dr. Bukola Saraki, have cleared the medical expenses of Mr Ibu through his foundation, Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation.
Mr Ibu had, on Wednesday, appealed to Nigerians to come to his aid, noting that he does not want his legs to be cut off, following an undisclosed ailment.
Reacting to his appeal, Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation, on Friday, came to his rescue and settled all his medical bills.
