- A serving NYSC member has been diagnosed with aplastic anemia, a very serious illness
- The young man was deployed to Kebbi state where he had to redeploy to Oyo state after the sickness started
- Family members and close friends of the corp member are sourcing for funds to save his life
Obafemi Oluwatimileyin Paul, a serving corp member deployed to Kebbi state has been diagnosed with a grave illness that may claim his life if unattended to immediately.
The young man who is a graduate of Federal University of Technology, Akure (FUTA) was said to have fallen sick on getting to Kebbi camp. NAIJ.com gathered that he was said to have been diagnosed with pale eyes which is a sign of anemia.
Paul was called to service and was dispatched with the 2016 B stream 1 set. His state code was given as KB/16/2111. Nathaniel Oluwadamisi Obafemi, the brother of the sick NYSC member took to his social media page to share vital information about Paul.
He did this to prove to the world that his bedridden brother is in fact a serving corp member and also to source for fund. Paul was said to have graduated from FUTA without having this ailment.
According to Oluwadamisi, the corp member was redeployed to Oyo state for proper treatment. He was admitted to the University College Hospital (UCH) Ibadan in November 2016 when things got awry.
Ever since then, the young man has gone through numerous blood transfusions as the tests conducted on him showed that his bone marrow was no longer producing blood.
Oluwadamisi revealed that the cost incurred in treating him has drained the family financially as their mother has taken to begging from church to church to save him.
Paul’s brother is also a serving corp member deployed to Kebbi state. He stated that his stipend goes into the treatment of Paul as he implored Nigerians to render the little help they could to save his brother.
Check out the initial post made by Paul's brother:
Oluwadamisi dropped an account number where donations could be made to save his brother. He also shared pictures of NYSC ID card and other important documents to prove that this is not a scam.
Please help save the young man.
