Drama as Mr Ibu prays for his wife on his hospital bed (Video)
A new video featuring veteran Nollywood actor Mr. Ibu and his wife Stella at his hospital bed has sparked reactions online.
In the video, Mr. Ibu, who has been seriously ill for several weeks, is seen expressing his gratitude and offering prayers for his wife for standing by him during his health ordeal.
It was previously reported that Mr. Ibu had undergone five surgeries and would be flown abroad for further treatment.
His family had issued a statement, noting that the surgeries had been successful, and they were appreciative of the donations received from Nigerians. Additionally, the medical expenses for Mr. Ibu were covered by the foundation of former Senate President Bukola Saraki.
Mr. Ibu, whose real name is John Okafor, made headlines when he celebrated his 62nd birthday with his family at the hospital. The actor’s health condition was visibly challenging, with an emaciated face and swollen legs. He had pleaded with Nigerians not to let his leg be amputated.
The new video of Mr. Ibu, showing his post-surgery condition with his wife Stella by his side, has raised concerns and garnered attention, particularly noting the sudden appearance of white hair, likely due to the stress and strain of his illness. Many people have expressed their sympathy and support for the actor during this difficult time.
