‘I don’t want to be castrated’ – Veteran actor Sadiq Daba who’s down with prostrate cancer; cries out


Nollywood Veteran actor, Sadiq Daba is not having good times and enjoying the acclaim that a true veteran actor should have.

He has been diagnosed with prostate cancer. This is just barely months after the actor was in the hospital for several months due to leukemia.

Punch’s Sunday Scoop did put a call to him during the week to find out how his health condition. This was what actor Sadiq said:

“Right now, I have a catheter inserted into my joystick to ease the movement of urine. I have been in and out of hospitals for a while now.

Next week, I also have to go for a biopsy to determine if I would need to do a major surgery. I have leukemia to battle with, then this prostate issue comes in. The pain is just too much for me.

“I have been receiving treatment at LASUTH and OAUTH and the doctors have been wonderful. I was told that one of the side effects of the surgery is that my testicles would have to be removed. That means I would be castrated and I don’t think I want that.

The other option is that I would have to take injections that would cost N150,000 every two months, and I have to take it for about two years. You can imagine what the total cost would be,” he added.
