The Vice President of the Nigeria Boxing Federation, Azania Omo-Agege, has promised the body would contribute towards the payment of the hospital bills for ailing boxing legend, Jeremiah ‘Jerry’ Okorodudu.
Okorodudu, who represented Nigeria in the men’s boxing event at the 1984 Olympic Games in Los Angeles suffered a mild stroke attack and had extreme difficulty speaking, before subsequently falling into a coma while at Dan’s Hospital in Ikorodu, Lagos.
The PUNCH reported last week that the Olympian is now feeling better following a series of transfers from different hospitals, mainly due to lack of funds, that have now brought him to Lawanson Lagos Private Hospital.
