Veteran Nigerian Nollywood and Village Headmaster actor Tunde Alabi has had his leg amputated after complications from diabetes but this is not half the news.He apparently has nowhere to live and could be on the streets.But i remember the actor,he was a well spoken man that could be termed middle class in his hey day.He must have had children and he certainly has family,where are they?Can't any of his children put him up and take care of him.This is really sad.
Nollywood actor, Paul Julius, who has been following up the case of the ailing actor, gave an
update on his Facebook page. He wrote
So sad! Our Veteran Actor's foot finally amputated...I've laboured through thick and thin to save the life of Uncle Tunde....assisted vigorously by the indefatigable Chairman of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Lagos State Chapter, Mr. Don Pedro Aganbi and throughName: TUNDE OBAFEMI ALABI Account number: 0005647181 UNITY BANK PLC.
the contributions of a few spirited colleagues and fans, we were only able to manage to keep him alive but not with his full body as our once vibrant UNCLE TUNDE ALABI loses his right foot today at General Hospital, Lagos to Diabetes Mellitus. Now he's faced with another battle for survival.....Expensive drugs required to heal the amputated leg......no home to return, no money to afford one as his ailment has suck up his entire finances. We have done our best... ...What would you rather do to assist him....just put something in his account no matter how small and the Lord will reward you abundantly. Thank you.
Narrating his experience with the leg before it was amputated,the actor said- “I went to bed at about 8:30 pm that fateful day with the intention of waking up at 1 am. When it was about 9 pm, I had a strange expulsion on my right leg.
