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.
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.
