Sadiq Daba confirms suffering relapse after returning from surgery in the UK

Six months after returning from the United Kingdom where he underwent surgery for prostate cancer and Leukaemia at the Marsden Hospital, Fulham Road, London, veteran broadcaster and actor Sodiq Daba has revealed that he suffered a relapse.

Daba took to his Facebook page to reveal that much and also noted that if not for God and for the help of some medical personnel at a hospital in Garki, Abuja, he would be singing a different song now.

The wizened thespian informed that he suffered a relapse shortly after his return from the UK in the message on Facebook said; “I have been in and out of the hospital in Abuja where I had a relapse, if not for the help of some good doctors at Garki hospital, I would have been singing a different song now ..”

Recall that Daba returned to Nigeria last December after surgery courtesy of the efforts of well-meaning Nigerians who contributed their widows’ mite to fund his travel to the UK where he received proper medical care and treatment.

Before then, Daba had earlier quashed claims that he was misdiagnosed in Nigeria when news initially filtered in that he had been diagnosed of leukaemia and prostate cancer.
