Nollywood actor John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu, has undergone five successful surgeries.
Remember how the renowned actor asked Nigerians to help him pay his medical bills as he celebrated his 63rd birthday from a hospital bed.
Mr. Ibu declared that he was fighting a disease that might cause him to lose his leg while pleading for help from the public.
The comic actor recently disclosed that he had five successful surgeries in a statement posted on his Instagram page.
He did, however, clarify that he is still in the intensive care unit and is awaiting stabilization before departing for a foreign country to receive more advanced medical care.
Appreciating the public for their donations, Mr. Ibu also said he was depending on their prayers and steadfast support.
The statement partly read, “So far, Daddy has gone through 5 successful surgeries, and he is still recovering in the ICU. Daddy is immensely grateful and we are thankful to the general public during this phase of our lives. We appreciate all the donations made to this account, and as soon as Daddy is better he will personally acknowledge all donations respectively!
“We are still counting on all your prayers and unwavering support as we pray he gets stabilized quickly to enable us to fly him abroad for further advanced treatment… The John Okafor family is grateful to all Nigerians.
