Veteran Nollywood actor, John Okafor, a.k.a Mr Ibu, has undergone further amputation on the same leg which was previously amputated.
The actor’s family disclosed this in a statement issued via his verified Instagram page on Saturday.
LEADERSHIP recalls that the comic actor had undergone seven surgeries including amputation of his leg. However, on Saturday the family said, “The first amputation didn’t completely correct his health predicament so the doctors had to go ahead to amputate the same leg further.”
Part of the statement read, “We wish to correct some misconceptions making rounds on social media concerning the current state of our father’s health. First, we would like to state that our daddy wasn’t amputated on both legs but only one.”
The statement further clarified that his cause of sickness is not diabetes. “He’s had constant clotting of blood in his leg (diseased blood vessels) and other health challenges posing risk to his life, therefore the need for amputation.”
According to the family, Mr Ibu wasn’t flown abroad for treatment because “the doctors tagged him ‘Not fit to fly’.
