Nollywood actor John Okafor, better known as Mr. Ibu, has undergone five surgeries, all of which were successful.

On his Instagram page, the ailing veteran’s family penned an appreciation post to the public as he gave an update on his health battle.

In a statement on his Instagram page, they stated that he is still recovering in the ICU and is waiting to get stabilized so he can fly abroad for further advanced treatment.

The family thanked the general public for their donations, adding that he was counting on them for their prayers and unwavering support.

“We want to thank God and most especially the General public for their support, encouragement, and prayers during this trying period for our dad.

We called on Good Nigerians and we are very grateful for the response in every aspect most especially the donations, it came in very timely and very helpful.

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”.

Africanglitz reported last week that Mr. Ibu, who is currently hospitalized, had cried out to the public for help as he battled an ailment that could get him amputated.

Nigerian music sensations Davido and P-Square, along with the popular personality Tunde Ednut, had offered to cover the medical expenses of the legendary actor.

Former Senate President Bukola Saraki had cleared off his medical bills through his foundation.

Kate Henshaw, on behalf of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, had dismissed reports that they abandoned Mr. Ibu, as she stated that they had been at the forefront of providing necessary support to Mr. Ibu even before his condition was made public.

Countering her, Mr. Ibu’s wife, Stella Maris, in a viral video, called out the AGN over their lack of support for her husband.

She claimed that the statement released by the guild was only to save their faces, as it was completely untrue.

Reacting to it, Kate Henshaw addressed Stella Maris, tackling her for lying, as she stated that the Guild has been supportive of the actor since 2021.

She noted how Stella Maris is at her wit’s end, hence the statement; however, saying the Guild hasn’t been helpful to her husband is untrue.
