“I Am Not Paralyzed” – Man Said To Be Paralyzed After Visiting Edo Cries Out

The gentleman said to have been paralyzed two days after he paid a visit to his village in Edo state has come out to debunk the claims of him being paralyzed.

He shared his story to Nairaland’s TonyeBarcanista.

My attention has been drawn to a defamatory story being circulated onli‎ne with the malicious title “Man paralysed two days after visiting his home town in Edo”.In the said story, without any form of verification from me, I was alleged to be paralysed after visiting my hometown in Benin, Edo state.

I hereby debunk the story as same is filled with half truths and outright lies. While it is true that I recently took ill, I was never at anytime paralysed and same definitely has nothing to do with my travelling to Benin or being from Benin.


My family and I have been subjected to numerous embarrassing calls as a result of this story. This has greatly affected my reputation.

Sequel to the foregoing, I hereby state that I am not paralysed. I equally did not mandate anybody to publish my medical condition on facebook or any news channel.

Accordingly, I hereby demand that all traditional and online newspapers who have pulished this story, immediately withdraw same, while urging others to desist from spreading this false story. I have equally instructed my lawyers to take out legal proceedings a‎gainst the online news media that initially published this story.

I thank my friends, family and well-wishers who have called to show genuine concern about my welfare after they read the story.

Osaruonamen Ogbebor.
