Jasmine Okafor, the adopted daughter of veteran actor John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu, has revealed the story of how she came to know the movie icon.

Recently, Jasmine and Mr. Ibu’s son, Daniel Onyeabuchi, were arrested in Lagos for allegedly defrauding the actor of N55 million.

In a widely circulated video on the internet, Jasmine addressed the allegations and shared her side of the story.

She recounted how she met Mr. Ibu, who became a father figure to her after the death of her own father.

Jasmine shared her perspective on the incident on her YouTube channel, shedding light on the circumstances leading up to the arrest.

Despite facing challenging times, Jasmine expressed gratitude to God for her journey over the past three months.

She explained that while she initially hesitated to speak out, she felt compelled to share her truth as she believed she had been abused and used.

She stated: “I want to say thank you to everybody, especially those who had faith in me, believed in me, and patiently waited till this day for me to speak out.

“The past three months I can’t say it has been hell, but in every situation, I want to give thanks to God. I said I wasn’t going to talk about this issue until Daddy (Mr Ibu) gets back on his feet and glory to God he has been discharged and recuperating. A lot has happened and I would like to shed more light on how I got involved and how things got to this point.

“I am not talking because I need people to sympathize with me. I am talking because I feel like I have been abused, and used and I hope you guys are patient enough to listen to the entire story because it means a lot to me.

“My dad passed away so many years ago, he was in Nigerian army and was a good friend to Mr Ibu, who is now a father figure in my life. When my dad passed on, Mr Ibu was at the burial, and ever since then has played a father figure role in my life. Fast forward to 2018, I left the country, I left Nigeria to look for greener pastures, and from there I relocated to Cyprus where I was studying law.

“Fast forward to 2020, Mr Ibu started writing me on WhatsApp, requesting financial assistance and this was surprising to me because before I left, he was doing well and was almost at the peak of his career. He now opened up to me that he was sick and was in Abuja, while his wife was in Lagos I requested to call her and she told me he had left the house for over two years.

“I didn’t want to speak but things have gotten to a point that I have to speak my truth”.

“She captioned the video via her Instagram page with: “Thank you all for your patience, love, and prayers, during this trying period! I have declined lots and lots of interviews simply because I wanted to be able to tell my story exactly the way it happened, sequentially, with facts and evidence. I have uploaded the full video on my YouTube and I will be uploading more evidence there if need be. Obviously, in times like this silence isn’t golden, silence is consent. And I will never consent to allegations based on envy, sentiment, and zero fact, I will be posting bit by bit here.”

JomogNews Nigeria reports that Khabir had during his latest episode of The Esther Show podcast claimed that Bobrisky is gay and once asked him out.

He revealed a lot of gays approached him after he played a female character in one of his skits.

He said, “Bobrisky moved to (approached) me. That was a long time ago. I think it was 2017, 2018. I can’t remember vividly.

“When you’re talking about the Pamela, Mama Felicia thing, there’s a whole lot (of) story behind that character because it’s a feminine character.

“So I got some ridiculous approaches from them; I don’t know if I should mention them. They are alphabet people.”

Reacting to the allegations via his Instagram page, Bobrisky shared a screenshot of Khabir sending him a DM request.

Bobrisky blasts the comedian, saying his career is dead and he is only using his name for clout.

He wrote, “My lawyer sent me this stupid boy’s lie on one dead podcast, and I was just laughing hard.

“Your career is dead a long time ago, I’m sure that’s why you think you can use Bob for clout.

“I’m happy he mentioned 2017. Guys, this is the last chat I can remember I had with that guy before blocking him.

“He has been on my block list since 2017. Those of you real followers will know that my page has always been private. Baba kept sending me requests; probably he was asking for something I can’t really remember.

“If a billionaire dude says Mummy of Lagos wants him, honestly, I’m never going to argue, but a broke n*gga like that one with beards lika e he-goat, naaa. I’m too classy for that trash.”
