Tunde Alabi, Nollywood actor, has lost his right foot to diabetes mellitus.
Paul Julius, the actor’s colleague, who shared the news, said Alabi’s foot was amputated at the Lagos general hospital.
He said himself, Don Pedro Aganbi, chairman of Actors Guild of Nigeria, AGN Lagos chapter, and a “few spirited colleagues and fans” worked tirelessly to save the actor’s life.
Julius called on people to assist the actor to stay alive as he requires expensive drugs, money, and a home to return to after the surgery.
“I’ve laboured through thick and thin to save the life of Uncle Tunde… we were only able to manage to keep him alive but not with his full body as our once vibrant uncle Tunde Alabi loses his right foot today at General Hospital, Lagos to Diabetes Mellitus”, he said.
“Now he’s faced with another battle for survival. Expensive drugs required to heal the amputated leg, no home to return, no money to afford one as his ailment has suck[ed] up his entire finances.
“We have done our best. What would you rather do to assist him… just put something in his account no matter how small and the Lord will reward you abundantly.
A Unity Bank account was also provided by Julius, who constantly shares updates of the actor’s health on his Facebook page.
Last week, he urged Nigerians not to “forget” the bedridden actor as “waits for help”.
“Happy Sunday dear all… is he forgotten so soon? He’s still lying at the hospital waiting for your help and support”, he had said.
Alabi’s most prominent acting roles were in ‘Village Headmaster’ and ‘Palace’.
