November 13, (THEWILL) – Stella Maris, the wife of comic actor, John Okafor, aka Mr Ibu, has claimed that the actor’s adopted daughter, Jazmine, hijacked the funds donated for his surgery.
Mr Ibu has been in the public eye since he revealed his battle with an undisclosed illness.
The actor’s plight has triggered help from Nigerians, some of whom have donated funds for his surgeries and treatment.
Despite undergoing seven surgeries, the actor’s leg was, however, amputated last week.
In a recent Instagram post, Stella alleged that Jasmine has been secretly controlling the bank account meant for donations.
She said when she demanded accountability on the donations, Jasmine cooked up all kinds of lies and propaganda against her.
She also addressed claims by Jasmine that she received N1 million to spend on herself.
“The N1m donation they talked about was paid into my account on my husband’s instruction (and in his presence) to offset some bills at the home front. I don’t understand why Jazmine, a complete stranger, should be dragging me over my family matter,” she wrote.
“I do not have access to the main Access bank account where people make donations. It is being secretly controlled by Jazmine yet she is cooking up all kinds of lies and propaganda against me in order to keep absolute control of that account. How she manipulated her way and took control of that account is a story for another day.
“There was never a time I asked anybody to buy a car for me. It was only mentioned in a private discussion between Jazmine and my brother, and she recorded it as a tool for blackmail. It was an innocent suggestion to help me cope with the suffering I was going through with public transport while trying to coordinate my hospital schedule with the home challenges.
“Jasmine said I took her name to a native doctor. This is very funny. Please, I don’t do native doctors or any form of fetish. Never.”
