Just In: Cause of Mr Ibu's Death Revealed

Veteran Nollywood Actor, John Okafor with the moniker, Mr Ibu, has passed away at age 62.

The Comic Actor who had undergone surgeries that led to the amputation of his leg finally succumbed to the cold hands of death. According to reports, he died on Saturday, March 2, at a hospital in Lagos.

According to the National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas, Mr. Ibu suffered a cardiac arrest which led to his demise.

According to reports, the actor has been on life support after he underwent a second surgery for his ailment recently. The family source said that his blood pressure had been over 200 after he had the surgery and that efforts were being made to stabilize it before he sadly passed away today.

The actor battled with constant clotting of blood on his leg (diseased blood vessels) and other health challenges for years. In October 2023, he came out publicly to seek financial assistance to treat his ailment. There were plans to fly him abroad for further medical care but that plan was aborted by his doctors who believed he wasn’t fit to fly.

It would be recalled that before his demise, there had been speculations about his demise following his absence from the limelight for over three years before the news of him being bedridden went viral.

In May 2022, the comic actor again alleged that he was poisoned for the third time.
In an interview with Vanguard Newspaper, Okafor disclosed that he was already “seeing people on the other side” but God brought him back to life.

He said his enemies were happy about his illness and thought he wouldn’t make it but God brought him back to life. The actor said his sickness taught him a “big lesson”, adding that he is surprised that he is still alive.

The veteran actor is survived by a wife and children.
