My leg may be cut off, Mr Ibu seeks Nigerians' help

Emeka Chochoo, the former manager of popular Nigerian actor, John Okafor, better known as Mr Ibu, has revealed why one of the actor’s legs was amputated and affirmed that the actor is responding well to treatment.

In an interview with the PUNCH on Thursday, Chochoo explained that the amputation became necessary due to an infection in the arteries at the ankle that was not detected early enough.

“I worked as Mr Ibu’s manager for over a decade. He is responding well to treatment, and he is gradually healing,” Chochoo said.

He further explained that doctors have been treating several ailments that the actor has been facing, but the amputation was necessary because blood wasn’t flowing into the leg, which was not detected on time.

“What led to the amputation of one of his legs was an infection that affected one of the arteries at the ankle. When it was detected, it had become too late, causing the doctors to decide on the amputation,” he added.

Chochoo also confirmed that the surgery was done in Nigeria, but the actor would be flown abroad for further treatment soon. “For now, he is being cared for in Nigeria,” he said.
