Veteran Nollywood actor, Amaechi Muonagor has said half of his left leg is paralyzed.
Muonagor said this while crying out for help as he is currently battling paralysis.
In the heartbreaking video seen by The Telegraph online, the 61-year-old was seen on the bed as he begged fans and colleagues to help him financially.
“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,” Muonagor said.
“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,” he said.
The Telegraph reports that this is coming a few days after another veteran actor, Mr Ibu, who is currently hospitalized, had cried out to the general public for help as he battles an ailment that could get him amputated.
