After leg amputation, Tunde Alabi, ex Village Headmaster cast, has no home to return to



After leg amputation, Tunde Alabi, ex Village Headmaster cast, has no home to return to
Five days after the right leg of Tunde Alabi (one of the surviving cast members of the now rested TV series ‘Village Headmaster’) was amputated at a hospital somewhere in Surulere area of Lagos, the veteran actor seems now to have no home to return to.
Tunde who has been battling with diabetes which affected his leg requiring amputation was advised by doctors handling his case that his leg be cut off so it doesn’t affect other parts of his body.
Paul Julius, a Nollywood actor and a close colleague of Tunde took to his Facebook page to give an update on the condition of the ailing actor whom he said has no place to return to after his leg was amputated.
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 through 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.” Paul wrote on his Facebook page.
