A statement from Federal Medical Centre, said Pius is a known patient of their facility being managed by the orthopeadic and internal medical department.

“He was first seen in the hospital on August 12, 2020, on account of poor healing of a right above knee amputated stump. He has been having regular wounds dressing and a protruding bony mass was removed from the stump on April 16, 2021.

“He was last seen at the orthopaedic clinic on May 28, 2021. He would benefit from a lower limb prosthesis artificial limb for better ambulation.”

A younger brother to the patient, Ubong Nyong Pius, said his brother has been surviving through help from family members, church members, friends and well-wishers, adding that it is now beyond their capacity.

He said: “My brother had diabetes and diabetes led to cataract, we have been taking him to different places for treatment such as Oyo and Ogun states, including Gbagada General Hospital, Lagos for treatment, but the sickness persists”.
