We are deeply saddened to report the passing of beloved comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu. He departed this world on Saturday, March 2, after a valiant struggle with blood clotting issues in his leg, at a hospital in Lagos state.

The veteran actor, adored for his exceptional comedic talent in films, had publicly sought financial help in October 2023 for his medical condition. Plans for treatment abroad were halted due to the severity of his health.

Leaving behind a wife and children, Mr. Ibu was 62 years old at the time of his passing. His legacy as a master of comedy and his contributions to the film industry will forever be remembered.

Our thoughts are with his family during this difficult time. May Mr. Ibu’s soul find eternal peace.
