Sadiq Daba, a veteran actor who travelled to the UK for medical treatment, has returned to Nigeria.
Daba had been battling leukaemia and prostate cancer for the past few years.
Inadequate funds had threatened to scuttle his treatment but his friends and colleagues pooled funds for his treatment in the UK.
Joe Okei-Odumakin, a human rights activist who was among those who canvassed for funds for Daba, announced the news of his return.
Posting on Daba’s Facebook page on Friday, Okei-Odumaki quoted the legend as saying: “It’s soooo good to be back home.
“I am back stronger, healthier and well…. all thanks to the goodwill and kindness of thousands and thousands of Nigerians both home and abroad. Special mention and lots of love to Soni Irabor, who kick started it all. I am ever so grateful.”
The ‘October 1’ star was treated at Wellington Diagnostics Hospital in London.
