Emeka Rollas, national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN), has revealed that veteran actor Amaechi Muonagor is completely paralysed and requires immediate assistance.
Mr Rollas revealed this in a recent interview with Vanguard while providing an update on the health of another actor, Mr Ibu.
According to the AGN president, who recently visited Muonagor at the Intensive Care Unit of Nnamdi Azikwe University Teaching Hospital in Nnewi with some of his colleagues, the actor’s health is pitiful, as he is now a shadow of his former self. Rollas stated:’
“You will shed tears if you see Amaechi Muonagor now, his legs are completely paralyzed. I’m calling on all fans and well wishers of the actor to join hands with other philanthropic Nigerians to support him in this dire time.”
Emeka Rollas revealed on Instagram that he has approved the transfer of N250,000 from the AGN Trust Fund to the ailing actor’s account, which he believes will be insufficient given Muonagor’s records with the Guild HMO and Insurance policy.
Rollas, on the other hand, urged young actors to apply for the AGN HMO and Insurance programmes.
Amaechi’s health condition was made public on November 3 after a video of him begging for money went viral.
The actor revealed that he had been suffering from a stroke for the past seven months and needed financial assistance.
