Michael Duru, a veteran Nollywood actor who has been battling diabetes and has had his leg amputated, has been awarded N5 million by billionaire prophet Jeremiah Fufeyin, the head of Christ Mercyland church in Warri.
In what appeared to be an emotional and dramatic moment for the actor, who has been confined in his home town in Anambara state after his doctor insisted that he must be amputated to survive, the prophet’s gesture brought tears of joy to the actor and his wife.
In a video posted on the Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin Foundation social media page, Michael Duru explained that life has been difficult since he was amputated, adding that he couldn’t afford an artificial leg that he estimated at about N600, 000.
The attention of the man of God was drawn to a video Duru had earlier made on social media regretting his state and seeking for assistance from Nigerians.
The billionaire prophet thereafter sent a delegation to Duru’s home in Anambara to present cash gift of N5 million to the veteran.
The moment left the actors in tear, warranting the gathering of the villagers and well wishers who were rejoicing over the development.
The prophet’s action towards the actor is just one of the regular actions from the cleric.
During the festive season, thousand of families were feted with over N85 million and foodstuff by the Jeremiah Omoto Fufeyin Foundation,
Barely one month ago, Fufeyin provided over N40 million to wives of men of the Nigerian armed forces, who died in service.
He had also assisted Thespian Clem Ohameze with N8Million to offset medical bills.
