“How I sold all my cars to save my wife from cancer” Actor Lekan Olatunji opens up on wife’s painful death (Video) ‎

Nollywood actor, Lekan Olatunji has opened up on his wife’s painful death.

In an interview with Biola Bayo on her show, Talk to B, he revealed that his wife died of breast cancer. Lekan recounted how he sold two of his cars for N4 million to save his woman’s life but his efforts were futile.

According to him, they didn’t know his wife had cancer until they went for a check-up and found out that the cancer had hit her spinal cord, which made her unable to work.

He said the doctors who examined her were surprised that her body hadn’t started decaying as her cancer was already in a terrible stage.

“When we came to Lagos for the check-up, we didn’t even see any Nigerians, they were like apprentices there. Indians were the ones operating the machines. From there we were given the result and when we saw the result, it was cancer. But instead of reacting in her body, it hit her spinal cord. That was why she couldn’t walk again. Cancer of the breast, she just had something little there, but it wasn’t paining her.

When I questioned her about it, she said she told her Matron and she said it was due to family planning and it wasn’t paining her truthfully. It wasn’t reacting in her body at all.

Even the doctors that examined her said her body ought to have started decaying, at the level that it was. They said we were going to do 2 urgent surgeries worth N12.5million.

In her presence, she looked at me and started crying. I said don’t worry, I went outside and started crying. 12.5m, where will I see it? So the whole family had to be involved because we couldn’t hide it anymore. We were about to fly her out, but unfortunately, we didn’t get a Visa on time. Because the family head said we should bring her over to America, and the expenses will be deducted from his salary. If we don’t do the first operation to correct the spinal cord, she won’t be able to walk again. I sold two of my cars for 4 million.

The first surgery we did was 5.8million, everything we spent was about N7.8million in Lagos and she was there for like two weeks”.
