“I’ve been battling a spine disease for so many months now, in and out of hospital since January 2019, finally I was told the only solution is spine surgery, a very delicate surgery that can render me permanently paralysed for d rest of my life if not properly done. I was so scared, the bill for such surgery runs into millions of naira. Long story short, I finally did the surgery In a clinic in Abuja called Brain and Spine Surgery Consortium.

I want to say a very big thank u to friends and family who went out of their way to support with d huge surgery bill, I will never forget u for supporting instead of looking for lame heartless reasons and excuses not to help. God bless u all immensely. Who says Brain, Spine and other delicate Surgeries can’t be done in Nigeria? I’m recuperating fine. Help me thank God.”

We reported earlier this year, George slammed Ned Nwoko for getting married to actress, Regina Daniels. George in her now-deleted post called Nwoko a dirty old man. George’s call-out is coming on the heels that a court of appeal sacked Nwoko as a senator-elect in Delta state and reinstated Peter Nwaoboshi.

However, reacting to George’s call out, Nollywood actress and former president of the Actors Guild of Nigeria, Ibinabo Fiberesima in a lengthy post stated that Daniels is an established woman and would not have been coerced into anything against her will.
