Nollywood actor, Bruno Iwuoha, who is famous for his ‘fatherly roles’ in movies, has lost his sight.
Last Tuesday 14th of July, veteran actor Bruno Iwuoha was a guest on the Brekete Family Program on 104.5FM in Abuja and while on air, he opened up about his current battle with diabetes/glaucoma.
According to the talented actor, he never knew he had diabetes until a violent armed robbery attack that landed him in hospital.
He said “I’ve gone to so many places; within the country, outside the country for treatment, until finally…finally, the thing [diabetes] claimed one of my sight. As I look at you now, I’m using only one sight. They call that glaucoma. And gradually, it’s affecting the other one. So, naim make, apart from places…the people who call me atimes, both the little cash they can give me…drugs and all that…but I discovered that this thing [the illness] is a lifetime something. And it has robbed me of the job [acting]. And now, if I get a script, it will be hard for me to read it very well. And if I read it, if I strain my eyes for so long, it would look as if someone would lead me around the house or anywhere I want to go because it will affect the only one [eye]. So that’s my problem.”
The actor now needs to bee transferred to a US-based hospital where he is required to have N3.5million, and all he has so far is N200,000.
Oh by the way, he says the AGN and AGN president Ibinabo Fiberesima are yet to reach out to him.
