Daniel Okafor, the second son to actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, has debunked claims by Stella Okafor, the actor’s wife, that Jasmine, Mr Ibu’s adopted child, hijacked his bank account.
Stella Maris took to her Instagram page on Sunday to allege that Jasmine hijacked the bank account where money was donated for Mr Ibu by well-meaning Nigerians.
Her post partly read, “I do not have access to the main Access bank account where people make donations. It is being secretly controlled by Jazmine, yet she is cooking up all kinds of lies and propaganda against me to keep absolute control of that account. How she manipulated her way and took control of that account is a story for another day.”
She also addressed claims by Jasmine that she received N1 million to spend on herself.
“The N1m donation they talked about was paid into my account on my husband’s instruction (and in his presence) to offset some bills at the home front. I don’t understand why Jazmine, a complete stranger, should be dragging me over my family matter,” she wrote.
But Jasmine, reacting, said, “I do not want to be involved with the online drama, at least not yet. I am more concerned for Daddy’s well-being,” she said.
Coming to Jasmine’s defence, Mr Ibu’s second son, Daniel Okafor said, “There is no truth in what Stella Maris has been sharing online. Jasmine does not have access to that account; I have access to it. I am the signatory to the account and my father’s next of kin.”
Daniel also disclosed that Stella Maris is his stepmother, refusing to share more details about his mother.
“She is my stepmother. My mother is not around at the moment,” Daniel said.
