Afeez Agoro, the tallest man in Nigeria has died. A family source said he passed on after a protracted illness.
Recall that a few weeks ago, 48 years old Agoro had made headlines when he cried out to well-meaning Nigerians to help him with funds to undergo surgery for hip replacement.
Agoro who also ranked as the second tallest man in West Africa at 7ft 4inches, was rushed to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) after he developed some complications from the surgery on Wednesday, a friend said.
“I reached out to check on him as usual yesterday only to be told by someone who picked his call that he had be rushed to LUTH due to complications.
“But unfortunately, this morning I was informed he died around 7:30pm last night,” Jide Ojo-Olusola lamented.
