Nollywood movie star John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu has denied claims he is seeking financial aid to cater for his hospital bills.
The actor who is currently receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment at Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre, Abuja, has stated that he is not seeking financial aid from anyone to foot his medical bills.
Mr. Ibu’s health challenges became known after a video of him jokingly begging his daughter to take his medication as he has a phobia for taking drugs on his behalf emerged online and subsequently went viral.
The video may have prompted some of his fans to think the comedian was soliciting financial support to help cover his medical bills.
Responding to the speculations, Mr. Ibu “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 to the devil, it won’t work, God has raised me up. I am not going anywhere to beg anybody for money, I am not saying that all my friends who are supposed to pay me a visit and give me cannot give me, they can give me; no problem but it is not as critical as they are saying, so anybody whose business is to criticize my sickness, they should stop”.
