His friend Paul Julius said there were several efforts to checkmate the amputation surgery but all failed as they seemed to have come rather too late.

Julius, who has been taking care of him, said the sick actor has no home to go back to after the surgery. He said, “ As I speak with you, the amputated leg has just been taken to the mortuary. But that is not our major concern right now but where he will return to as his home. Right now, he has no family, no friend that can take him in. He is homeless.”

"Our effort to reach the governor of Lagos State, his home state, has only proven partially successful as nothing definitive has come off it. The governor knows Uncle Tunde and will be willing to help but bottlenecks of bureaucracy has not helped matters,” he added.
