Mr Ibu endures second amputation, barely capable of speech

Veteran comic actor Mr Ibu has reportedly undergone a second amputation and can hardly communicate verbally, as revealed by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN).

Mr Ibu (real name John Okafor) has been receiving treatment following the first amputation of his leg and sharing an update, AGN President Emeka Rollas revealed that the actor's situation is being monitored.

Rollas also shared information on another ailing Nollywood star, Amaechi Muonagor, who he said is now a shadow of his former self.

“We are resigning to fate concerning the two actors. As I speak with you, Mr Ibu hardly talks again and he has undergone another leg amputation,” he shared with Vanguard.

The AGN President who recently paid a visit to Muonagor at the Intensive Care Unit of Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital, Nnewi disclosed that the latter is in a pitiable state.

“You will shed tears if you see Amaechi Muonagor now, his legs are completely paralyzed. I’m calling on all fans and well-wishers of the actor to join hands with other philanthropic Nigerians to support him in this dire time,” he said.

Speaking further, Rollas revealed that the sum of N250,000 has been approved for the ailing actor's treatment but it would not be enough based on Muonagor’s records with the Guild HMO and Insurance policy.
