He said:

“Hello my name is John Ikechukwu Okafor, Mr Ibu. I’ve been down for so many weeks, all I’m hoping for is your prayers and assistance. I’ve been in the hospital since as I speak to you I’m still lying down in the hospital. The medical director of this hospital said that the best solution is in case this new idea doesn’t work, the best idea is to cut off my leg. Just see me, if they cut off my leg where would I go? Where will I go from here? Please be on prayers for me, talk to God almighty, I don’t want my legs to be cut off please, thank you so much, God bless you.”
