Nollywood icon Amaechi Muonagor is reaching out to the public, hat in hand, as he shares his recent struggle with a paralyzing stroke, seeking both financial aid and prayers to help him in this challenging chapter of his life.
In a widely shared video, the ill actor was seen lying flat on his back, explaining how the stroke ordeal began and the medical course he’s taken thus far.
He described being rushed to the hospital after his initial stroke episode, where he stayed for several months. However, because his condition showed no signs of recovery, he was sent to Nnewi Teaching Hospital in Anambra, where he is still receiving treatment.
Amaechi went on to explain that seven months ago, on a day fated for misfortune, he had just wrapped up a taxing shoot alongside his colleagues Emeka Ani, Patience Ozokwo, Rita Edochie, and Ebele Okaro on a movie set. Just as he was preparing to hit the road in his car, he found himself suddenly struck by a debilitating stroke.
Since that ill-fated day, the actor revealed that his stroke condition has been deteriorating. He can no longer move his legs or walk independently, and half of his body is now paralyzed. He apologized for not sharing this publicly earlier, as he never anticipated the illness would persist for so long.
Now, he is reaching out to kind-hearted Nigerians, seeking financial assistance for his paralysis, which has caused significant swelling in parts of his body and rendered him unable to eat. He also mentioned that during his three-month stay at the current hospital, they have run out of the necessary medications for his treatment.
Amaechi added that he is in desperate need of help from his colleagues, fans, and friends.
