Mr Ibu hasn’t been well for a while now, as just last year, he had his leg amputated due to illness. However, he seemed to be recovering just fine, and there were even videos circulating of him in which he appeared healthy.


While it isn’t certain whether the cardiac arrest Mr Ibu suffered which led to his death was related to his leg being amputated last year, there is still a possibility that both cases are linked.


Amidst the wailing on social media, Mr Ibu’s family is yet to make an official statement, either on his page or their personal pages. This is understandable because they are probably in the throes of mourning, which has probably taken away the coherency they need to release an official statement.
