Shehu Sani Reacts As Mr Ibu Begs For Financial Aid Over Battle With ‘Strange’ Illness.

Former Kaduna Central lawmaker, Shehu Sani has pledged support for the comic star Mr Ibu, describing him as his “favorite comedian.”

Recall, the veteran actor celebrated his 63rd birthday in an undisclosed hospital in Lagos on Tuesday where he revealed in a video posted on Instagram that he needed financial support so his leg would not be amputated.

He said, “I have been down for so many weeks, all I’m hoping for is your prayers and assistance. I’ve been in the hospital, as I speak to you, I’m still lying down in the hospital.

“The medical director says in case his new idea didn’t work, the best idea is to cut off my leg, just see me, if they cut off my leg where will I go to? Please be on prayers for me, talk to God Almighty, I don’t want my leg to be cut off. God bless you.” 

Reacting to the actor’s predicament, Sani wrote via his X handle on Thursday said that Mr Ibu should not be disappointed, adding that he and others would get wealthy individuals to also help.

He wrote, “Mr Ibu is my favorite artist and Comedian. He lights up and entertains the homes of millions of Nigerians. We shall not let him down for reasons we can all collectively solve. We shall do the needful and also bring the attention of the big names to do the needful.”
