Renowned superstar singer, Peter Okoye, also known as Mr. P, has extended his support to the veteran actor Mr. Ibu, who is battling an ailment that may result in the loss of his leg.
Mr. Ibu recently reached out to the public for assistance, revealing that he had been unwell and on admission for several weeks. In a heartbreaking video shared on his Instagram page, he mentioned that doctors informed him they might need to amputate his leg if he exhausts all options, and he provided his bank account details for donations.
Further explaining the situation, his daughter, Jasmine Okafor, revealed that her father’s health had not improved, and they had depleted their financial resources. She requested assistance in flying him abroad for better treatment.
Peter Okoye took to his Instagram page to express his support for Mr. Ibu, emphasizing that Nollywood legends deserve better lives. He called on people to show their love and pledged his full support.
“Our very own @realmribu (John Okafor) needs our help as he goes through a medical challenge. Our Nollywood legends deserve better; it is time for us, the people, to show our love for bringing joy to our screens all these years. I am pledging my support for him 100%. My dear colleagues, friends, family, and fans, please support him in any little way you can! He needs our prayers and financial support in this challenging time. Praying for his speedy recovery. May God heal you permanently, our dear veteran,” Peter Okoye wrote.
Mr. Ibu celebrated his 62nd birthday in the hospital, and his daughter, Jasmine, shared a touching video of the occasion, expressing her desire to see her father healthy and back on his feet.
