Nollywood actor Bruno Iwuoha, known for the fatherly roles he portrays in movies has cried out to Nigerians for help as he is gradually going blind.
Iwuoha made his plea on a radio programme in Abuja where he claimed that a violent armed robbery attack resulted in him landing in the hospital. Known for his trademark grey hair, he claimed that he never had a history of diabetes until after the attack.
“I’ve gone to so many places; within the country and outside the country for treatment, until finally, finally, the thing – diabetes claimed one of my eyes. As I look at you now, I’m using only one eye. They call that glaucoma. And gradually, it’s affecting the other one.”
The actor – also a chief – won the Best Supporting Actor award at the 3rd Africa Movie Academy Awards and he joins the growing list of actors and actresses who have fallen on bad times in their finances and health. Ernest Asuzu recently cried out about his predicament.
