Due to accusations that they stole funds intended for the actor’s medical care, Nigerian police have detained the son and adopted daughter of well-known Nigerian comic actor John Okafor, often known as Mr. Ibu.

It is claimed that Jasmine Okekeagwu and Onyeabuchi Okafo stole “the actor’s phone and hacked into the banking details” before making off with 55 million naira (£47,800; $60,700).

The sum of money included donations made by fans and well-wishers for the actor’s medical care following a protracted sickness that he endured in the previous year.
