On Wednesday night, actress Doris Ogala broke the news. Ogala said Jasmine and Mr. Ibu's sons had been detained at the Alagbon Police Station on suspicion of allegedly stealing a large quantity of money (about N300 million) from the donated money.

The actor recently underwent surgery that resulted in the amputation of one of his legs, and the money was supposed to go towards his medical bills.

The matter became more serious when it was suspected that Stella Maris Okafor, Mr. Ibu's wife, was responsible for calling the police.

Stella Maris had accused Jasmine of using the donated money for herself and demanded explanations and accountability.

There were talks that Stella Maris wanted to use the money to get a brand new home for herself.

But reacting, Emeka Chochoo said police invitation was not the same as an arrest and that Jasmine, Daniel, and Val had been called in to answer questions concerning Mr. Ibu's claim.

However, Val was supposedly left out of the loop because he had only recently returned to the country and was uninformed of the unfolding events.

"Yes, they were all invited by the police. I won't call it an arrest; the police invited them over Mr Ibu's account. However, Val is left out, as he knows nothing about what's been happening. He just returned to the country," Emeka Chochoo told Punch.
"I have not been able to reach any of them," the ex-manager added.
