The family of the late renowned actor Mr. Ibu recently gathered for a poignant service of songs to honor his memory, though notably absent was his adopted daughter, Jasmine.

Mr. Ibu, whose real name was John Okafor, passed away on March 2 following a prolonged illness, leaving behind a legacy as a comedic icon in Nollywood.

The service, which took place on June 14, saw close relatives and friends joining together to pay their respects. Photos shared by Mr. Ibu's biological daughter, Chelsea Okafor, on Instagram captured the somber mood of the occasion. However, details about the location of the event were not disclosed.

The absence of Jasmine, Mr. Ibu's adopted daughter, was conspicuous, and her whereabouts remain unknown. This comes in the wake of previous controversies involving Jasmine, including allegations of misappropriation of Mr. Ibu's donations and purported romantic entanglements with his son.

In her Instagram post, Chelsea Okafor shared glimpses from the service, writing,
"Some of the pictures from the Special Service of Songs for my Late dad, John Okafor…. Family and friends gather to pay tribute and respect to the king of comedy in Nollywood yesterday 14th June. Please try to attend the candle light on the 17th. Thank you as burial will be 25th,26,27,28."

As preparations continue for Mr. Ibu's final rites, including a forthcoming candlelight ceremony on June 17 and burial ceremonies scheduled from June 25 to 28, the absence of Jasmine underscores ongoing familial complexities and unresolved tensions.

The Nollywood community and fans alike mourn the loss of Mr. Ibu while hoping for reconciliation and closure within the family during this challenging period.

It’s very difficult to get extended  members of a family accept an adopted child - male of female - in Nigeria.

Adoption is STILL not a fully accepted  practice in Nigeria.
