Despite the difficulties, the medical team has been working hard to address the actor’s many health conditions.
The ex-manager of renowned Nollywood actor John Okafor, better known as Mr Ibu, Emeka Chochoo, has revealed the reason for the amputation of one of the actor’s legs.
The news came after it was revealed that Mr Ibu had seven successful surgeries, including an amputation, due to an illness that compromised the arteries in his ankle.
Chochoo, Mr Ibu’s manager for over a decade, said the actor is responding well to treatment and is progressively mending.
Chochoo revealed that the amputation became essential in Mr Ibu’s medical journey due to an illness that damaged one of the ankle arteries.
Unfortunately, the condition went undetected until it reached a critical stage, leading to the difficult decision to amputate the leg.
“The doctors are treating everything one after the other. What led to the amputation of one of his legs was an infection that affected one of the arteries at the ankle.
“Blood wasn’t flowing into the leg, which was not detected on time. When it was, it had become too late, causing the doctors to decide on the amputation,” Chochoo explained.
He also mentioned that the surgery took place in Nigeria, and while Mr Ibu is currently receiving care in the country, plans are underway to fly him abroad for further treatment..…CONTINUE.FULL.READING>>>
