Actor Charles Inojie has prayed for ailing actor Mr Ibu whose leg was recently amputated.
Mr Ibu’s family revealed the actor’s recent condition in a statement via Instagram on Monday.
The statement read: “Good afternoon, Nigerians. We want to appreciate everyone who has come through for our dad, saying we are grateful is an understatement and only the good Lord can thank you all enough for every help you’ve rendered.
“As of 1 pm, noon today, Daddy has gone through 7 successful surgeries but to keep him alive and increase his chances of recovery, one of his legs had to be amputated. This development has been hard on us all but we’ve had to accept it as Daddy’s new reality to keep him alive.
“Please we are still soliciting for support from well-meaning Nigerians as this stage Daddy is still one very delicate one and he needs all the help he can get.
“Thank you, everyone, the Okafor family is grateful and we don’t take you for granted. In due time Daddy will personally acknowledge everyone who supported during this period as soon as he’s stable!”
The news came with sad reactions from fans and celebrities like Charles Inojie and Judy Austin who took to the comment section of the actor’s post to pray for him.
“For the joy that your name and persona exudes across the four corners of the earth, God Almighty shall preserve you till you attain a good, ripe old age,” Charles Inojie.
“This is truly painful but in every situation, we give God all the Glory. Praying for your quick recovery Daddy,” Judy Austin added.
