He continued,” When it started, I went to a hospital in Sogakope, and I underwent a series of tests, and doctors diagnosed that it is a combination of glaucoma and cataract; and to my utter dismay, doctors told me its incurable …so am now totally blind.”
He nevertheless, acknowledged his previous benefactors i.e Kwame Sefa Kayi, Bola Ray and others for funding his previous surgeries.
