Popular Nigerian actor and comedian, John Ikechukwu Okafor (Mr. Ibu ) who was born October 17, 1961, died on Saturday, March 2, 2024 in the hospital.

In October 2023, the veteran actor was reported ill and required financial assistance.

However, in November 2023, Okafor’s family confirmed that one of his legs had been amputated to keep him alive.

The amputation became necessary because of an infection of the arteries at the ankle that was not detected early enough, his former manager Emeka Chochoo revealed.

Celebrities and colleagues of the Nollywood veteran continue to mourn Mr. Ibu.
