Despite his plea to well-meaning Nigerians to come to his rescue, legendary Nollywood actor, Tunde Alabi, who has been battling an ailment at the Lagos General Hospital, got his leg amputated.
His right leg was reportedly amputated on Thursday.
Recall that the ‘Village Headmaster’ actor, had been battling diabetes for years with no treatment because of lack of money and had been lying critically ill with one of his legs set for amputation in order to save his life.
While Alabi had called on Nigerians to support him, saying he did not want to die, renowned actor and movie director, Paul Julius, among others, had urged well-meaning Nigerians to come to the actor’s aid financially.
According to Yoruba Movie Gist, YMG, doctors advised that the leg be cut off so it won’t affect other parts of his body.
