Mr Ibu, Amaechi Muonagor’s heath conditions worsen

Nigerian popular comic actor, John Okafor (Mr Ibu) is reportedly facing a deteriorating health condition, leading to severe communication challenges as he hardly talks again.

Dr Emeka Rollas, the National President of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), disclosed that Mr Ibu underwent another surgery recently, resulting in the partial amputation of the same leg that was previously operated on.

Additionally, Dr Rollas provided an update on the health status of another veteran actor, Amaechi Muonagor, who has been hospitalised at Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital in Nnewi, Anambra State, for an extended period, exceeding two months.

Expressing sadness over the development, Mr. Rollas said, “We are resigning to fate concerning the two actors.

“As I speak with you, Mr Ibu hardly talks again, and he has undergone another leg amputation,” Rollas added.

He added, “You will shed tears if you see Amaechi Muonagor now; his legs are completely paralysed.

“I’m calling on all fans and well-wishers of the actor to join hands with other philanthropic Nigerians to support him in this dire time,” Rollas said.

He revealed that N250,000 has been sent to the ailing actor’s account from the AGN Trust Fund. According to him, the money may not be enough.

Recall that weeks back, Amaechi Monagor’s cousin, Tony shared the actor’s health update on Facebook, when he revealed he was battling for his life after he was diagnosed with kidney disease, diabetes, and stroke during his three-week hospital admission.

In his post, Tony wrote, “This picture was taken two weeks ago when I visited my cousin Amaechi Monagor (Aguiyi) at the Nnewi Teaching Hospital. I initially had wanted to quietly assist as much as I could but later decided to make this post to clarify some things so that my friends, fans, and Amaechi’s fans, and indeed the online community can be better informed.

“Amaechi is currently down with kidney disease, diabetes, and stroke. He had been managing his diabetes over the years and living his life. He is at present undergoing weekly dialysis and other treatments at the Nnamdi Azikiwe University Teaching Hospital Nnewi,” Tony wrote.
