Veteran actor, Abdulsalam Ishola Sanyaolu popularly known as Charles Olumo â€˜Agbakoâ€™ in the Yoruba movie industry has been down with a strange ailment that rendered him incapacitated and made him disappear from the scene for some time.
The 94-year-old thespian who is now back on his feet granted an interview recently where he said, â€˜I have told them, and Iâ€™m also using this opportunity to inform them, that nobody should come and shed crocodile tears at my burial. If they do, my spirit will flog them, because when I needed their help, they were nowhere to be foundâ€™.
He went on to say, â€˜I have been sick but thank God Iâ€™m back on my feet. My ailment was heart-related and after series of test, I was told that my heart was weak, coupled with the fact that I often forgot things, so I was placed on drugs that must be used to avoid any crisisâ€™.
When asked if he underwent any surgery, he said, â€˜no, the doctors said there was no way they could perform surgery on me. They said the drugs were very essential and must not be skipped. Though, I was operated upon when I had urinary ailment recently, Iâ€™m free from that nowâ€™.
