John Ikechukwu Okafor aka Mr. Ibu’s second son, Daniel Okafor has denied the allegations made by his stepmother, Stella Maris regarding the control of the account where donations are made.
Taking to her Instagram account, Stella while reacting to some accusations, debunked a rumour which stated that she demanded money to buy a car with funds donated for Mr Ibu’s upkeep.
Moreso, she fingered the actor’s adopted daughter, Jazmine as the orchestrator of the rumour. While clearing the air, Stella noted that she does not have access to the humour merchant’s main bank account.
Stella then asserted that Jasmine, had taken control of the bank account where monetary contributions for the ailing actor were made by compassionate Nigerians.
In a new revelation uncovered by The Punch, Jasmine was contacted to give an insight on the ongoing allegations but refused to give details. She said:
“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, however, directed the news publication to reach out to the actor’s second son, who introduced himself as Daniel Okafor. In his words:
“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 added that Stella Maris is his stepmother but refused to share more details about his mother. Daniel said:
“She is my stepmother. My mother is not around at the moment.”
