In a previous interview, Lawal, a 300-level student of IBB University, Lapai, said he was diagnosed with sickle cell disease and that he had undergone surgeries which didn't solve the problem.

He said he has been referred to a hospital in Germany for further treatment and it would cost an initial sum of N12.8 million.

His words:

"Germany was finally suggested to me. I have been in contact with my medical experts in Germany and they have assured me of my health. They have set up a medical programme for me to get better."
"I have been in the struggle to raise funds for myself. I have sent thousands of emails regarding sponsorship to hospitals, governmental organisations, private individuals, NGOs, private organisations but the responses come with a little bit of trauma."
