Nollywood veteran actor, Amaechi Muonagor, has made a heartfelt appeal to well-meaning Nigerians for assistance as he grapples with partial paralysis in his left leg.
In a heartbreaking video, Muonagor tearfully reached out to his fans and fellow colleagues, requesting financial aid.
He said: “I’m sick, this thing that is called stroke caught up with me, and from there they rushed me to the hospital. The first hospital they rushed me to was in Nnewi, where I spent some two months and I was referred to Teaching Hospital Nnewi and here I am.
“I was on a movie set with Emeka Ani, Patience Ozokwo, Rita Edochie, and Ebele Okaro. I was about to enter my car when I was struck with this problem and since then it has been getting worse. Right now, I can’t move, I can’t walk on my own. Half of my left leg is paralyzed, so it is a problem for me.
“I’m calling on well-minded individuals to come to my assistance, to see how they can help me. It is paralysis, half of my body.”
It was earlier reported that this is coming a few days after another veteran actor, Mr Ibu, who is currently hospitalised, had cried out to the general public for help as he battles an ailment that could get him amputated.
