On his way back from work, two weeks ago, in early April 2017, a young man, Ayodeji Balogun was involved in a ghastly accident involving a commercial motorcycle, popularly known as Okada in Nigeria.
The incident left him badly injured and now he has reached out to kind Nigerians for help as he needs corrective dental surgery.
Below is the Facebook post made for him by his friend:
“Two weeks ago, Deji had a pedestrian bike accident (he was walking on the roadside with a friend after work when a bikeman hit him).
“It’s been two weeks of horror and so much pain. There are times he wakes up in the night groaning, or early in the morning, holding his jaw. We give him plenty on tramadol just so the pain becomes bearable.
“Three lip stitches, lots of meds, scan, xrays, and talking to doctors, and we’re almost out of this but we have a major dental surgery left to do.
“In the accident, he lost 5 front teeth and we need to replace them. We need to hurry; his gum has begun to swell.
“So, this is me asking for help from all my Facebook friends. Please, help us raise the N750,000 we need for the artificial implant; help us raise this money. Every Naira contributed will be greatly appreciated.
“Kindly pay to;
Balogun Emmanuel Ayodeji
