Chochoo disclosed that the amputation of Mr Ibu’s leg was a result of an undetected infection in the arteries around the ankle. The actor underwent seven surgeries, with one involving the amputation of his leg. In a Thursday interview with Punch, Chochoo confirmed that Mr Ibu was positively responding to treatment.
He said, “I was with him up until yesterday. I worked as Mr Ibu’s manager for over a decade.
“He is responding well to treatment; he is gradually healing.
“The doctors are treating everything one after the other. What led to the amputation of one of his legs was an infection that affected one of the arteries at the ankle.
“Blood wasn’t flowing into the leg, which was not detected on time. When it was, it had become too late, causing the doctors to decide on the amputation.
“The surgery was done in Nigeria. He will soon be flown out of the country for further treatment but for now, he is being cared for in Nigeria.”
