He needs N15m for a kidney transplant

Abiodun's wife, Olajumoke Okelola Ayankoya, told Legit.ng in a phone conversation on Monday, June 21, that her husband will need a kidney transplant.

According to doctors, this will cost a staggering $30,000 (N15 million).

Olajumoke stated that though people have been making contributions, most of the donations received so far go into hemodialysis.

"People are giving us money but all the money on the ground now, with the GoFundMe money, is 3 million.
"In fact, it is not up to 3 million because we spend money on dialysis," emotional Olajumoke told Legit.ng.

Still seeking donation via GoFundme

Although 3 million has been raised so far for Abiodun's illness, kind-hearted people are still being called to help raise $30,000 (N15 million) needed for the transplant.
