The actor’s adopted daughter, Jazmine Okafor stated this on behalf of the family on Tuesday.

Taking to Instagram to give an update about her father’s condition, Jazmine said that the actor tried to crack jokes like nothing happened.

She added that this is the strongest she has seen him in three weeks.

She wrote: “Never seen anyone so strong… even after two major surgeries, you were still trying to be funny like nothing happened, even in your lowest you still cracked jokes! I promise you, if there’s a God in heaven, you are getting out of this bed, stronger and alive. This is the strongest I have seen you in 3 weeks and I’m so excited! Fight this and get well soon, sweet papa.”

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 had 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”
