On November 6, 2023, Mr. Ibu’s family tragically revealed the devastating news that, following seven surgeries, the actor would need to have one of his legs amputated.

We were all hoping he recovered. But regrettably, the seasoned actor has gone away.

It would be recalled that in 2019 Mr Ibu alleged that his kinsmen paid some of his domestic workers to poison him because of his successful career.

In May 2022, the comic actor again alleged that he was poisoned for the third time.

In an interview with Vanguard Newspaper, Okafor disclosed that he was already “seeing people on the other side” but God brought him back to life.

He said, “My illness was actually perpetrated by people that hate me. They did what they did to me. Later, I was taken to the hospital. The doctors are prophets. So, they went into my system and they told me what was wrong and what they are going to do. I said ‘Whatever you are going to do, please, do it, let me live because if I die like this the enemies will laugh’. And then the doctors said ‘Okay, there’s no problem’.

“At the time, I didn’t know what happened. I left! So, whatever I was saying they recorded it. I was saying something like somebody who is going mad. I wasn’t actually seeing anybody. But on the other side where I was at that time, I was seeing some dead people.. God brought me back.”

He said his enemies were happy about his illness and thought he wouldn’t make it but God brought him back to life.

The actor said his sickness taught him a “big lesson”, adding that he is surprised that he is still alive. Details surrounding his death are at the moment scarce but we shall bring you updates once we lay hands on the facts.

May his soul rest in peace!
