Breaking News: Stop using my illness to scam people Says Mr Ibu


Actor John Okafor aka Mr Ibu has cried out against persons using his sick condition to scam unsuspecting Nigerians.

The comic act, who is undergoing treatment at Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre, Abuja accused fraudulent individuals of taking advantage of his illness to enrich themselves in a video.

He said he was not the one soliciting for funds especially with his Instagram page which he said has been hacked.

He said his condition isn’t as critical as some persons are making it to be.

Mr Ibu said: “Some people have sold me like this…they don’t even want to hear from me. All they do is to sell me free of charge. The devil! It won’t work.

“God has risen me up…God has risen me up. I am here with my wife. I haven’t gone anywhere to beg anyone for money.

Mr Ibu added: “I am not saying that all my friends who pay me a visit cannot give me money. They can give me money, no problem.

“But not as critical as they are talking about. So, anybody whose business is to criticise my sickness and take advantage of it, they should stop it.
