Jasmine Okekeagwu, the adopted daughter of late John ‘Mr Ibu’ Okafor, has opened up about the passing of the veteran actor.

Mr Ibu died from a cardiac arrest on March 2 at Evercare Hospital in Lagos.

The 62-year-old actor had battled with a life-threatening illness for months but sadly passed away after a long and difficult fight against the illness.

Mourning the thespian 10 days after his demise, Jasmine took to her Instagram page to share footage she took with Ibu, chronicling some good moments they had together.

Jasmine, who has been embroiled in controversies since she was adopted into Mr Ibu’s family, said she is “broken” over the actor’s demise.

She also said “every good thing she did for Mr Ibu was paid back in evil”, adding that she is sad he was no longer alive to address the claims against her.


Jasmine said one thing she is happy about is that despite all the allegations, Mr Ibu “never talked down on me”.

“Goodnight papa! You will forever be remembered for the love you gave, and the laughter you brought. I am grateful to God that I was able to give back that love till the very end.

“Despite all that was said, every single good I did was translated to €vil, you always promised me that the day you will speak, the world will listen and that gave me the audacity to carry on.

“Now I am brok€n because that day is never coming, maybe the stories will never end, maybe the bull¥ing will never stop but I know and I’m grateful for the ray of hope you gave me even when you felt hopeless.

“Every single good I did was paid In hundred folds with €vil, from the hands of the same people that were never really there for you when you needed them the most but daddy you know what matters the most amidst all these accusations? You never talked down on me, you appreciated me till your very last moment.

“The pains you endured in the last days, you did with a smile, I am not mourning your d€ath, I’m mourning all the pains you had to endure, over 15 successful surgeries, you are indeed a fighter! You fought d€ath severally until it claws successfully overpowered you.

“I hope you find true happiness, peace and rest in the bosom of God! Make sure God laughs at all your jokes and Angels roll on the floor from every conversation with you. I lost a hero, Heaven gained an Angel. Adieu Papa!!!,” she said.
