A veteran broadcaster, journalist and television actor, Mr. Duro Solomon, is critically ill. He needs N4 million for a surgery after he narrowly survived a ghastly road accident.

The broadcaster, victim of a hit-and-run driver, has been in and out of hospital since 2015 when the accident occurred in Abuja. Already, he has sold off virtually everything he owned, including his car, to offset his hospital bills.

He narrated his story: “On November 15, 2015, by 8.30 p.m., I was standing along Gwarimpa Housing Estate to get a bike home when a fast-moving car suddenly knocked me down and dragged me into a gutter, abandoned me and sped off.
