Nollywood veteran Maureen Okpoko has pleaded with Nigerians to help her since she is losing her vision.
In a video making the rounds, she indicated that she struggles to see now and hinted that she needs urgent medical attention or loses sight completely.
The ailing actress revealed she needs money to treat her vision impairment and blindness, hence the need to reach out to Nigerians.
According to her, living with vision loss has been tough, but she is grateful to God for the gift of life. She, therefore, requested that her fans pray for her.
“I suddenly lost my sight, that means I can no longer see or I can’t see for now.
I’m seeking for your financial assistance, it would be greatly appreciated if y’all can come to my aid.
I also need your prayers and words of encouragement, it has not been an easy journey for me, but I’m grateful for the gift of life. Thank y’all’”
