By Omotayo Olutekunbi
Nigerian actor and model Afeez Oladimeji Agoro, known as Nigeria’s tallest man, died suddenly after a protracted illness.
According to credible sources, the actor was sent to the hospital on Wednesday, June 14, 2023, but he died due to complications connected to his health.
His death has been a heartbreaking blow to his family, friends, and admirers who have followed his path attentively.
Agoro issued a financial aid request only a month ago, on May 14, 2023, asking for 5 million to receive therapy for his persistent hip arthritis.
The money was meant to cover the costs of a much-needed ball and socket joint replacement operation and any necessary follow-up treatment.
Agoro, who discovered his ailment, Acromegaly, also known as gigantism, when he was 19, thought that the kindness of others would allow him to obtain the medical attention he sorely needed.
Unfortunately, despite the community’s and his support, his disease worsened.
The towering icon died on the evening of June 14, 2023, at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital (LUTH), after difficulties.
Agoro was said to have been confined to his bed for many months before his unexpected death.
During this very sad time, we express our heartfelt condolences to Afeez Oladimeji Agoro’s family and loved ones.
