Ailing veteran Nollywood actor, Tunde Alabi is calling on all Nigerians to help him.
Tunde Alabi’s leg is hanging and set for amputation at the Lagos state general hospital.
The actor was diagnosed with acute diabetes and might lose more than his leg if nothing is done fast to help him.
Tunde Alabi who is reportedly fighting for his life at the Lagos General Hospital has called on Nigerians to help him.
One of his colleagues Paul Julius who spoke about his failing health said the actor might lose his right leg if help does not come his way fast.
Julius said Alabi has been having a long battle with diabetes but could not seek proper medical help because he has no money.
Speaking on his sickness, Alabi 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.
“Immediately, the leg started burning and I screamed throughout the night. The following morning I couldn’t move the leg again.
It was a spiritual attack. That’s what has kept me under this condition,” he narrated.
Putting to rest the allegations that he has been battling diabetes for years, the actor said that he only discovered his diabetic state after he was hospitalised.

Alabi added, “I may be evicted from the hospital any moment from now because I have no money to sustain my stay here.
“I don’t want to die. I am calling on well-meaning Nigerians to come to my rescue.”
The news of Alabi’s failing health is coming weeks after the death veteran actor Martins Njubuigbo popularly known as Elder Maya who died on September 30 months after battling liver related ailment.
