Daniel Okafor, the second son of John Okafor aka Mr Ibu has denied the recent claims made by the actor's wife, Stella Okafor regarding the funds donated for his wellbeing.
Recall that Stella took to her Instagram page on Sunday to allege that Jasmine, the actor's adopted daughter hijacked the bank account where money was donated for the ailing actor by well-meaning Nigerians.
Her post partly read, “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.”
Punch contacted Jasmine, who stated that she had no comment.
“I do not want to be involved with the online drama, at least not yet. I am more concerned for Daddy’s well-being,” she said.
Jasmine suggested that Punch speak with Mr. Ibu’s son, who introduced himself as Daniel Okafor.
Daniel stated that he is the actor's next of kin and is in charge of the donated funds.
“My name is Daniel Okafor; I am John Okafor’s second son.
“There is no truth in what Stella Maris has been sharing online. Jasmine does not have access to that account; I have access to it. I am the signatory to the account and my father’s next of kin.”
Daniel also disclosed that Stella Maris is his stepmother, refusing to share more details about his mother.
“She is my step mother. My mother is not around at the moment,” Daniel said.
