After a few weeks of campaign from his fellow Nollywood entertainers and other well meaning Nigerians, respite has come for the injured Tinsel actor, Victor Olaotan as Billionaire businessman, Femi Otadola has promised to take care of his $50,000 medical bills, and every other expense thereof.
According to Richard Mofe Damijo who broke the news a few hours ago, and also the man who put a call through to Femi Otedola asking for an assistant for his friend and colleague Victor Olaotan, said after his call, Otedola told him his team are already speaking with the wife of Victor Olaotan on the medical bills.
Taking to his Instagram page, actor Richard Mofe Damijo put up a photo of Victor Olaotan and Femi Otedola with this caption:
“So, a few days, I reached out to Femi Otedola asking for help for my friend and brother Victor and just this morning, Femi calls to tell me that he would take care of all of Victor’s bills. He told me that he already on it and his people are already talking with Victor’s wife.
Is God not awesome??? He asked.
Stating Further, he praised another Tinsel actor, Gbenro Ajigbade for starting the whole thing, saying:
“I can’t even contain my Joy and gratitude. Thank you Femi you are a man and a half and thank you to my young friend Gbenro Ajibade for championing this cause, they really don’t make them like you anymore, you are such an amazing ‘Child’ and I am proud to know you.
Thank you to everyone who has supported in one way or the other. Its been a long time coming.” he said.
According to earlier reports, Victor Olaotan has been receiving medical care since he was involved in a motor accident in October 2016. He was driving to a movie set when the accident took place around Apple Junction, in Festac, Lagos.
Before Femi Otedola phone call to help, he was seeking $50,000, about (N18.3 million) to receive medical treatment outside Nigeria in a bid to avert amputation of his legs, after the horrible accident.
A Gofundme account was formed, and with how the news spread and also having good friends and colleagues, he finally got the help he urgently needed.
…We would like to appreciate Femi Otedola for his kind gesture and all who have in one way or the other helped in giving assistance to Victor.
