The Actors Guild of Nigeria has denied claims made by Stella Okafor, wife of ailing actor, John Okafor aka Mr Ibu, that the guild has never been there for the comic actor.
On Wednesday, October 18, Ibu came out publicly to seek assistance as he battled an undisclosed ailment. The guild was afterwards accused of abandoning the actor who has contributed immensely to the movie industry.
Responding to her allegation, Kate Henshaw said the guild has been supportive of the actor but that his ailment keeps reoccuring and that he is expected to sort it out himself. She pointed out that had supported the actor in 2021 and thar in June 2022, the actor’s daughter, Jasmine sent a message to the president of the guild, Emeka Rollas, thanking him for being there for the ailing Okafor.
Kate stated that there are bank statements and other evidence to back up claims that the guild has been there for Mr Ibu. She stated that the guild is not a charitable organization nor a bank nor a hospital.
