Prominent actor, Kanayo O. Kanayo, has slammed former presidential aide, Reno Omokri, for taunting the Labour Party (LP) presidential candidate in the 2023 election, Peter Obi, over the ailment of his colleague, John Okafor aka Mr. Ibu.
The Nation reported that Mr Ibu recently cried out for prayers following his battle with an unnamed illness, which may lead to the amputation of his legs.
The ailing actor cried out hours after a video of his birthday in an undisclosed hospital in Lagos emerged on social media.
He stated that he doesn’t want to lose his legs as he has nowhere to go.
Reacting to the news of the comic actor making the rounds online, Reno Omokri, in a post via X, pointed out that Mr Ibu was a staunch supporter of Peter Obi and the LP flag bearer should support the medical bill of the thespian.
He wrote: “I sympathise with John Ikechukwu Okafor, AKA Mr. Ibu, over his ailment, and I urge all #RenosNuggeteers to donate to the account number he put out.
“Please do not ignore his cries for help. I also urge members of the public to donate. However, this is a man who publicly endorsed Peter Obi. He and his daughter danced for Peter Obi and broke the Internet.
“They went out on the streets campaigning for Obi. The same Peter Obi who boasted that he is richer than President Biden of the US, who at the time of Peter’s boast was worth $8.2 million.
“After all that John Okafor did for him, perhaps Mr. Peter Obi can support him by paying Mr. Ibu’s medical bills. I am even surprised that Peter Obi did not remember to post about Mr. Ibu on his birthday yesterday. Even at that, Peter Obi should help him in his time of need.”
Displeased with Reno’s post, Kanayo O. Kanayo described Reno as an attention-seeking writer, and people should avoid listening to him.
“Whoever still listens to this attention- seeking writer @renoomokri is a fool and has no work,” he wrote.
