Veteran actor Mr. Ibu departs from the living

Veteran actor Mr. Ibu departs from the living: John Okafor, better known by his stage name Mr. Ibu, was a veteran actor who died after a protracted illness and leg amputation.

On Saturday, March 2, Mr. Ibu passed away in a Lagos state hospital, leaving his friends, family, and coworkers in great pain.
The Instagram blogger Linda Ikeji was informed by family sources that the actor was placed on life support after undergoing a second surgery to treat his illness.

After the operation, his blood pressure was reported to have been over 200, and measures were being taken to bring it under control before his tragic death later that night.

It’s important to remember that Mr. Ibu had been dealing for years with various health problems, including recurrent blood clots in his leg (caused by damaged blood vessels).

He made a public plea for financial support to deal with his illness in October 2023. Even though his doctors had planned to send him abroad for additional care, they decided he was not well enough to travel, so the plan was canceled. In November 2023, his leg was amputated as part of his treatment.

The actor, who was 62 years old when he passed away, is survived by his wife and kids. Mr. Ibu was well known for his superb comedic acting in motion pictures.
