“Good afternoon, Nigerians.. We want to appreciate everyone that has come through for our dad, saying we are grateful is an understatement and only the good Lord can thank you all enough for every help you've rendered,” reads the statement.
“As of 1 pm ,noon today , Daddy has gone through 7 successful surgeries but to keep him alive and increase his chances of recovery one of his legs had to be amputated.. This development has been hard on us all but we've had to accept it as Daddy's new reality to keep him alive.”
“Please we are still soliciting for support from well-meaning Nigerians as this stage Daddy is still one very delicate one and he needs all the help he can get. Thank you, everyone, the Okafor family is grateful and we don't take you for granted. In due time Daddy will personally acknowledge everyone who supported him during this period as soon as he's stable!”
