Olamide said that a bill of more than R29 000 was incurred at the hospital where the operation took place. Out of that bill, his family was only able to get R8 300 together. He stated that the hospital stopped his treatment at some point because money was not forthcoming.
The man said that he was involved in an accident when he took a bike taxi and they ran i- between a trailer and a car. He revealed he was on his way back from work on the ill-fated day.
"My co-workers helped me"
Olamide revealed that before becoming security guard, he had searched for jobs all around to no avail. The national diploma graduate said that he was only earning a pittance.

Meanwhile, Briefly News earlier reported that a young physically challenged couple spoke about their situation as a couple. The wife, Kudirat Nurudeen Oseni, said that people always avoided them, thinking physical disability is contractable.
The husband, Nurudeen Oseni, said he is into liquid soap making. He revealed that even when it is raining heavily, he always goes out to make ends meet.
Oseni said he always makes extra effort because he knows his family has no helper. Kudirat said that when her husband wooed her, she wondered how they would cope, seeing that they are both physically limited.
