Stella Okafor, wife of Nollywood actor, John Okafor, fondly known as Mr Ibu, Maris Okafor has alleged that the actor’s adopted daughter, Jazmine, has hijacked the money donated by good-willing Nigerians to the actor.
Mr Ibu who recently had one of his leg amputated have been battling illness for some time.
Taking to her Instagram account, the thespian’s wife debunked a rumour that she demanded money to buy a car with funds donated for Mr. Ibu’s upkeep.
While noting that she does not have access to the actor’s main bank account, Stella fingered Jazmine as the orchestrator of the rumour.
In a lengthy post, the actor’s wife wrote in part, “Recently, there have been some malicious lies being peddled against me on social media as masterminded by Jazmine Chioma Okeke who wants to make me an outsider in my own home but God forbid. I will address Jazmine’s excessive interference in my family affairs and other related matters when the time is right. For now, my husband’s health is most important to me
“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 stranger should be dragging me over my family matter
She further said, “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 to keep absolute control of that account. How she manipulated her way and took control of that account is a story for another day.”
