Popular Nigerian actor Amaechi Muonagor has announced that he is paralyzed and is seeking for financial help to help in his hospital bills.

The 61-year-old actor said he suffered a stroke while on a movie set early this year. 

“I’m sick, this thing that is called stroke caught up with me, and from there they rushed me to the hospital. The first hospital they rushed me to was in Nnewi, where I spent some two months and I was referred to Teaching Hospital Nnewi and here I am." He said

Adding “I was on a movie set with Emeka Ani, Patience Ozokwo, Rita Edochie, and Ebele Okaro. I was about to enter my car when I was struck with this problem and since then it has been getting worse. Right now, I can’t move, I can’t walk on my own. Half of my left leg is paralyzed, my left hand is not movable, so it is a problem for me."

He concluded “I’m calling on well-minded individuals to come to my assistance, to see how they can help me,” Muonagor says in the video. “It is paralysis, half of my body," he said in a video that has now gone viral."
