Leading opposition figure, Peter Obi has mourned the death of legendary actor, John Okafor popularly known as Mr Ibu.

Mr Ibu died at age 62 at Evercare Hospital, Lagos, on Saturday after battling an illness that led to the amputation of his leg in 2023.

Reacting to the actor’s demise, Obi said, “His death is very saddening. He was one legendary comic actor who embodied laughter, exuded joy and spread happiness.

“When sadly he took ill, we all prayed for his quick recovery and hoped he would bounce back in good health.”

He further described the actor’s death as a huge loss, not just to the entertainment industry, but to the nation.

“Those artists who lighten the mood of the nation also perform a great task of helping us all to weather the dark storms of life.

“On behalf of my family, I commiserate with his bereaved family, the Actors Guild of Nigeria, who just lost two legendary actors within a few days and the entire Nollywood family.

“We share the pains of his death, but are comforted by the cherished moments of joy and happiness he left behind.

“May God who called him home grant him eternal rest and grant his family, and all of us who mourn him, the fortitude to bear his sad irreplaceable loss,” Obi said.
