Popular Nollywood Actor, John Okafor has finally lost his leg after battling undisclosed illness for many weeks, WAZOBIAWAP Nigeria has learnt.
According to source, his leg was amputated few hours ago.
Wazobiawap recalls that in an Instagram video shared on Wednesday, the veteran actor disclosed he is battling with an illness from a hospital bed.
Ibu revealed he had been down for several weeks and had been on admission.
He said the doctor advised they might resort to cutting off his leg if other options are exhausted without no result.
Mr Ibu said, “While I am hoping for prayers and assistance, as I speak to you I am still lying down in the hospital. The medical director of this hospital said that in case his new idea does not work, the next idea is to cut off my leg. Just see me, if they cut off my leg where would I go? Pray for me, I don’t want my leg to be cut off, thank you so much, God, bless you.”
Okafor’s wife and daughter, in the video, appealed to Nigerians to pray for them and lend financial assistance.
His daughter said that she has been sorting out the bills for as long as the actor has been ill.
She also stressed that the family would prefer to fly him out of the country for better treatment.
