Nollywood veteran actor, John Ikechukwu Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu and his family have taken to social media to appeal to well-meaning Nigerians and Non-Nigerians for help amid this trying time of his.
The actor who spoke from a hospital bed called for financial support and prayers.
He noted that the doctor recently said the last option (if other means of tackling his medical issue prove ineffective) would be to cut off his leg.
The actor who isn’t subscribing to this solution called for prayers, lamenting how his life would be if his leg got cut off.
His wife, Stella, and daughter, Chioma Jasmine also spoke in the video. The latter noted that they would appreciate it if anyone or organization could help fly Mr Ibu abroad for further treatment hence he is not responding to treatment in the Lagos hospital they took him to.
She added that the hospital is about to transfer them to another hospital and she has exhausted all her funds already.
The video shared had a caption that read:
“Dear Good people of Nigerian, we are counting on your support at these point we need it the most

John Ikechukwu Okafor”
