IKEJA, Lagos, Nigeria – Veteran actor, Sadiq Daba, well known for his role in the classic television soap, Village Headmaster is in serious pain, with his problems multiplying by the day.
The actor, who has been sick was first diagnosed months back for Leukemia. While he was struggling to contend with the ailment, he came down with prostrate cancer.
Looking quite frail, now retired at 65, he is confused. Besides, his meagre income cannot cater for his cost of treatment abroad and is calling on Nigerians to come to his aid.
Among his visitors so far are Dr. Joe Oke-Odimakin who has also promised to assist.
“This is truly my day, she heard of my story ,cut short her visit to Ilorin just to see me!! Thank you so much Doctor…promised to help ease my pains anyway she can!! All my troubles started when I was first diagnosed for Leukemia and then Prostate palaver set in!!
“The choices I have to make are nerve wracking…surgery to permanently rid of the discomfiture by doing something to my testicles…castration..that is my layman view or I get placed on drugs, for two years, without a guarantee that it will be a complete success at the cost of a 150,000 Naira monthly!!
“I have done the Biopsy , this is to confirm the positiveness of whether its cancerous or not, and then commence with the next procedure!! If only I could be(flown) abroad and seek for more medical attention! Without doubt some thing more positive I can get without going through rigours of a possible ” CASTRATION!!! ”
“The bottom line is that I NEED HELP financially to be able to do so!! Dr.Odumakin I am a in quagmire!!! Leukemia. Prostrate.. What,what do I do I ? Am age 67, retired, on a meagre salary that does not(come) as at when due, with a houshold to support!!! If only kind hearted Nigerians, the Government can HELP!!!!! Sadiq Daba”, he wrote.
