Jasmine Okafor, the daughter of veteran actor, John Okafor better known as Mr Ibu, has confirmed his leg has been amputated.

Kemi Filani reported minutes ago that Social media activist, Very Dark Man had disclosed that the veteran’s leg had been amputated.

He revealed that the actor’s family, friends, and close ones all betrayed him as they took advantage of the ailing actor and abandoned him when he needed their help.

According to him, he just finished speaking with his family, who disclosed to him that the actor’s leg had been amputated.

Confirming it in a press statement on her Instagram page, Jasmine revealed that one of his legs had to be cut to increase his chances of recovery, and he has undergone 7 successful surgeries.

According to her, this development has been very hard on them but they had to accept his new reality.

“Good afternoon, Nigerians…
