The uproar and whispers surrounding Mr. Ibu’s desperate call for aid regarding his health predicament continue to simmer.
The beloved comic entertainer, his voice dripping with pain and anguish, sounded the alarm that the clock is ticking as the axe of amputation hovers threateningly over his leg and demanded urgent financial aid.
What’s more, a clandestine whisper on social media hints that his health issues transcend the ordinary, implying that sinister juju charms might be at play, with fingers being pointed at his colleagues as potential culprits in this mysterious affliction.
A few hours after the esteemed Actor, Mr. Ibu, bellowed for prayers in his relentless fight with a mysterious ailment that could potentially cost him his legs, he’s been advised to tread a more spiritual path to address the situation.
Mr. Ibu, keeping the details of his ailment under wraps, conveyed that he’s walking on thin ice, suggesting that the medical director’s prescribed treatment is his last roll of the dice to salvage his leg.
In his response, Uche Maduagwu seized the virtual megaphone of social media and boldly proclaimed that Mr. Ibu’s health tribulations have a spiritual twist.
The actor voiced that, despite Mr. Ibu’s goodwill, a faction of his Nollywood peers laid a juju trap at his feet, and he fell right into it.
Maduagwu further revealed that his colleagues have ventured down diverse herbalist paths, all with the corrupt goal of trying to cast him into the throes of sickness.
“What you going through is Spiritual, Dear Mr IBU, Because of your Kindness, your Colleagues in Nollywood Don put JUJU for ground for you to Walk on, this is spiritual Sir. They have gone to Different Babalawo on your matter, you showed Them Kindness in their time of need, but look at How they reward you?” Uche Maduagwu wrote tagging Mr. Ibu in his caption.
