Veteran Nollywood actor, Tunde Alabi has got one of his legs amputated as a result of complications from diabetes.
The actor who featured in Village Headmaster fame has been in critical condition in General hospital where he has been receiving treatments. The operation which was unavoidable as a result of the severity of the ailment took place on the Monday 24th October, 2016.
Speaking about the sick actor was his colleague, Paul Julius who has been with him through thick and thin said, “ As I speak with you, the amputated leg has just been taken to the mortuary. But that is not our major concern right now but where he will return to as his home. Right now, he has no family, no friend that can take him in. He is homeless,” he said.

The governor knows Uncle Tunde and will be willing to help but bottlenecks of bureaucracy has not helped matters” he added
Paul Julies who urges people for help said, So sad! Our Veteran Actor’s foot finally AMPUTATED…..I’ve laboured through thick and thin to save the life of Uncle Tunde….assisted vigorously by the indefatigable Chairman of Actors Guild of Nigeria, Lagos State Chapter, Mr. DON PEDRO AGANBI and through the contributions of a few spirited colleagues and fans, we were only able to manage to keep him alive but not with his full body as our once vibrant UNCLE TUNDE ALABI loses his right foot today at General Hospital, Lagos to Diabetes Mellitus.
