Clem Ohameze, the Nollywood actor, has called on Nigerians to pray for him as he prepares to undergo surgery.
In a now-viral video, the actor said his health challenges started after he had a car accident some time ago.
The movie star also disclosed that after the accident, he had visited the hospital where an x-ray was conducted on him to ascertain the extent of injury sustained.
According to him, the result of the x-ray showed that his “cervical vertebrae 3 had collapsed on the 4th, thereby causing pressure on my spinal cord and the retardment of the lower limb”.
Ohameze said he was treated for a while and he got better. He, however, said he noticed that he started having difficulty walking later.
The film star said after undergoing a further scan, he was told that he would have to undergo a procedural surgery to separate the cervical vertebrae three from four to free the spinal cord permanently.
“After they showed me the procedure and how it’s been done, I was scared. I was told that they are going to cut open the neck and physically separate the cervical vertebrae three from four and then use an iron plate to plate it with some screws so it can remain permanent,” he said.
“It was scary but I have no choice. I seriously need people’s thoughts and prayers as I go in for this procedural surgery.”
In October last year, the actor had narrated how a mob attacked and robbed him in Uyo, Akwa Ibom state capital, during the #EndSARS protest.
