Actor John Okafor, also known as Mr. Ibu, is unwell. His wife Stella Maris has accused the actor’s adopted daughter, Jasmine, of embezzling money meant for his operation.
Last month, the sick actor turned to the internet to ask for help from the public while he battles an unidentified illness.
He had seven operations, but this week they had to amputate one of his legs.
Stella Maris, the spouse of Mr. Ibu, said on Monday in a post on her Instagram page that Jasmine had been surreptitiously handling the bank account designated for contributions.
She also responded to Jasmine’s assertions that she was given N1 million to spend on herself.
“My spouse was present when the N1 million contribution was sent into my account to help with household expenses. Why Jasmine, a total stranger, should be bringing me down over family concerns is beyond me.
“The primary Access Bank account, where donations are made, is not accessible to me. Jasmine is secretly in charge of it, but she is fabricating all kinds of falsehoods about me to maintain total control over that account. That’s a tale for an other day—how she conned her way and took over the account, she claimed.
