Emeka Ani, a veteran performer from Nollwood, has once more appealed for assistance due to a dangerous disease he is currently fighting.
Recall that in November the actor in need of surgery received a six million naira gift from the senior prophet of the Christ Mercyland Deliverance Ministry in Warri, Jeremiah Fufeyin.
The ill actor has disclosed that he must have yet another surgery due to an eye condition that, if left unchecked, could result in blindness.
In a video that was published on his colleague Muonago Collins’ Instagram page on Sunday, Ani made the appeal. Collins mentioned that last week Emeka Ani contacted him and explained his situation. Collins claims that Ani was identified as having glaucoma, a disorder marked by elevated pressure inside the eyeball that results in a slow loss of vision.
Ani said in the video: “There was a growth around my eyes. If you look at it very closely, you can see the growth advancing to the black area. If necessary precautions are not done, it could cause blindness.
So I’m asking you, my brothers and sisters, once more: Please help me so that I can be moved to another country for adequate care and surgery.
In Nigeria, I have visited numerous hospitals, but to no avail. Please lend a hand so I can once again use my sight.
After completing his initial surgery in February 2020, the Issakaba actor made his first appeal for financial assistance. His coworker Yul Edochie shared another video of the actor requesting funding on Instagram in October 2022.
Emeka stated in the video that he had been ill since December 2020 and disclosed in the video that he had diabetes. He added that he had a medical procedure that the diabetics had prevented him from recovering from. Emeka also mentioned that he had a partial stroke after the procedure.
