A forty-four-year-old indigene of Okere community in Warri South Local Government Area of Delta State, Mr. Christopher Uku, has appealed to members of the public to assist his family raise N8 million to correct a heart condition and ultimately save his life.

“I will be indebted to you (individuals, corporate bodies, NGOs, International Organizations and MDAs) if my humble and desperate appeal, is given the urgency my heart yearns for,” he enthused.

He gave details of his bank account for financial contributions from generous public as follows: Account Name: Agoreyo Alero (Mrs.) | Account Number: 2024165611 | Bank: United Bank for Africa (UBA) | GSM: 08036986406, 07086837958.
