John Okafor, also known as Mr. Ibu, a prominent Nigerian actor, has been advised by doctors to undergo a surgical operation, including the amputation of two toes, due to diabetes issues.
This news, revealed by his close friend and former manager, Chochoo, comes after two months of persistent reports of the actor’s death circulating online.
Chochoo, who is still close to Mr. Ibu, has attempted to clarify the issue and put an end to the false allegations of the actor’s death.
While admitting the seriousness of Mr. Ibu’s health challenges, he highlighted that the actor is still alive and has elected to undertake the recommended surgical surgery to address his ongoing health concerns.
The decision to amputate two toes was not taken lightly, and it was made after consultations with medical professionals who determined that these toes had been severely affected by diabetes and were at risk of further deterioration.
Contrary to baseless online speculations that Mr. Ibu might lose an entire leg, the doctors have recommended a focused and targeted approach to preserve his overall health.
In the former manager’s words;
“He has been dying online for about two months now. I don’t know where they are getting the news from because online, he is already dead but offline he is still alive. He is having another operation either today or tomorrow morning. I was his former manager but we are still very close. Online he is dead already but he is very much alive in reality.”
“He has had some complications based on his health but this time he is battling with diabetes. Contrary to reports online that they want to cut off his leg, the doctors advised him to cut off two toes because they have been affected by the illness because they were getting rotten,” he added.
