Nollywood icon, John Okafor, widely known as Mr. Ibu, has passed away after a prolonged battle with health complications. The 62-year-old actor fell ill in October 2023, requiring financial aid for his medical treatment. The following month, his family confirmed that he underwent leg amputation due to severe artery infection. Despite efforts to save him, Mr. Ibu succumbed to cardiac arrest on Saturday afternoon, shortly after being transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at Evercare Hospital. His demise follows a recent relapse in his condition. He is survived by his second wife, Stella Maris Okafor, and children Emmanuel Mandela Okafor, Chelsea Okafor, and Jay Jay Okafor.
Okafor and Stella Maris tied the knot in 2015. However, in November of last year, Stella accused their adopted daughter, Jazmine Chioma Okeke, of misappropriating donations meant for Okafor's health to finance her extravagant lifestyle. This accusation stemmed from Jazmine's own claim that Stella had utilized the funds to purchase a new vehicle for personal use.
In a statement posted on Instagram, Stella alleged that Jazmine was spreading false rumors about her and revealed that the bank account designated for donations was secretly managed by Jazmine.
"I do not have access to the main Access bank account where people make donations. It is being secretly controlled by Jazmine yet she is cooking up all kinds of lies and propaganda against me to keep absolute control of that account. How she manipulated her way and took control of that account is a story for another day," she said.
The accusations came months after Stella publicly disclosed that Jazmine was not Ibu’s biological daughter. Initially, she asserted that Jazmine was Ibu’s girlfriend, a claim refuted by his sons from a previous relationship.
