Nollywood actor John Okafor popularly known as “Mr. Ibu” was confirmed dead on Saturday evening, March 2, 2024. This is just two days after the death of another actor Sisi Quadri.

Recall that in October 2023, the veteran actor was reported ill and required financial assistance.

But in November 2023, Okafor’s family confirmed that one of his legs had been amputated to keep him alive.

The amputation became necessary because of an infection of the arteries at the ankle that was not detected early enough, his former manager Emeka Chochoo revealed in an exclusive chat in November 2023.

Nigerians have reacted to this heartbreaking news with memories of the movies he acted and how his legacy will remain evergreen in the hearts of Nigerians. They reminisced on his intentionality in bringing smiles and laughter to the faces of his viewers, adding that the void he has left will be impossible to fill.
