Actor Ameachi Munogaor has cried out for help over his deteriorating health condition as he is currently battling with kidney disease, diabetes and stroke.

In a video circulating on social media media, the ailing actor could be seen struggling to form his words as he appealed to the public for support.

The Aki na Pawpaw actor who could barely talk, laid on a bed with the right part of his chest covered with plaster. Ameachi Munogaor greeted his fans before proceeding to ask for support.

Amaechi’s health condition was made known to the public on November 3 2023 when a video of him begging for financial support went viral.

The actor disclosed that he has been battling with stroke for the past seven months and needed financial aid.

“I am sick, this thing that is called stroke caught up with me, from there they rushed me to hospital. The first hospital they rushed me to was in Nnewi, where I spent some two months and I was referred to teaching hospital Nnewi and here I am.

“In that set, I was with Emeka Ani, Patience Ozokwo, Rita Edochie and Ebele Okaro, at the end of that moment, I was to enter my car when I was struck with this problem and since then it’s getting worse. Right now I cannot move, I can’t walk on my own. All my half of left is paralyzed, so it’s a problem to me,” he said in the video.

A few weeks later, the actor’s cousin and colleague Tony One Week Muonagor added that the actor was also suffering from diabetes, a kidney disease and has been undergoing dialysis.

During his visit to the actor at the hospital, national president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) Emeka Rollas, said that he has approved the sum of N250,000 to be sent to the ailing actor’s account from the AGN Trust Fund, which, according to him, may not be enough, following Muonagor’s records with the Guild HMO and Insurance policy.

Amaechi Muonagor hails from Obosi village in Idemili North, Anambra State.

He made his acting debut in the Igbo film Taboo and has been featured in other movies like Peacemaker, Igodo, Ebube, Last Battle, Anambra Women, Evil World, Code of Silence, Aki na Ukwa and Karashika.

The 61-year-old is married with four children.
