Veteran actor and broadcaster Sadiq Daba has returned home after receiving treatment for prostrate cancer and Leukemia at the Marsden Hospital, Fulham Road, in the UK.
An obviously excited Daba who was able to afford the medical trip abroad after well-meaning Nigerians contributed their widows mite to fund his travel to the UK where he received proper medical care and treatment took to social media to express his gratitude.
Moments after arriving the country with his wife, Mobolaji, the wizened actor penned an emotional message thanking everyone that stood by him during his most trying time.
I wasn’t misdiagnosed in Nigeria, it is fake news, Sadiq Daba says ”It’s soooo good to be back home!! Who else will be there? Who has always been there ? Yes , the indefatigable woman of esteem and high standards, sincerity, honesty ,love, care ,adoration and an Angel……Dr.Joe Odumakin!! I am back stronger, healthier and well….all thanks to the goodwill and kindness of thousands and thousands of Nigerians both home and abroad…. Special mention and lots of love to Soni Irabor, who kick started it all !! I am ever so grateful,” he wrote.
The veteran broadcaster had earlier quashed claims that he was misdiagnosed in Nigeria when news initially filtered in that he had been diagnosed of leukemia and prostrate cancer.
In a statement sent through Dr. Joe Okei-Odumakin, Daba said it is fake news and such assumptions were unfair to people who did all in their power to help him during his hour of great need.
