The Nigerian entertainment industry is reeling from the loss of one of its most beloved figures, popular Nollywood comedy actor John Okafor, affectionately known as Mr. Ibu.

Reports confirm that Mr. Ibu passed away on Saturday while undergoing treatment at a hospital in Lagos. The tragic news was shared by the President of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Emeka Rollas Ejezie, who took to Instagram to announce that Mr. Ibu had suffered a fatal cardiac arrest.

According to Ejezie’s post, Mr. Ibu’s longtime manager, Don Single Nwuzor, confirmed the heartbreaking news of the actor’s passing. The announcement was met with an outpouring of grief from fans and colleagues alike.

In November 2023, Mr. Ibu’s family had revealed that the actor had undergone a leg amputation due to medical reasons. The decision came after a series of surgeries aimed at preserving his life.
