Mrs. Olaotan however gave thanks to God that the actor can finally go to rest after suffering for years.

“He has tried. It is not easy to be trapped in your own body for five years. He can finally rest now,” she said.

The accident forced the actor to be bedridden for five years. Some friends and colleagues at some point solicited for supports to get the actor back to his feet, but to no avail.
