Meanwhile, David Adenuga, in a letter requesting for financial assistance on behalf of the Odubiro’s family, said his mother had been advised by her doctor to go for a kidney transplant, adding that the recent tests that were carried out indicated that her two kidneys were no longer functioning as normal.

“Over the past few months, her health has been deteriorating, and after numerous medical consultations and tests, it has been confirmed that she needs urgent treatment for her kidney condition.

“Unfortunately, due to the complexity of the procedure and the ongoing medical expenses, the financial burden has become overwhelming for us.

“The recommended treatment plan includes a potential kidney transplant, which not only involves the cost of the surgery itself but also the significant expenses associated with pre-operative assessments, post-operative care, medications, and continuous medical follow-ups. These mounting medical costs have strained our financial resources to the point where we are unable to meet them alone,” he said.
