Actress, Tonto Dikeh‘s ex-husband, Olakunle Churchill have taken to her IG to narrate how a ghastly power bike accident ended his ambition to play football at international level.
He wrote on Instagram;
“DON’T STOP DREAMING BECAUSE YOU HAD A NIGHTMARE
The picture above explains the ‘Nightmare’ that I had in year 2000 after a ghastly power-bike accident that fractured my legs and dislocated the knee joint.
The Doctors gave me the options to amputate my left leg or fly abroad for further orthopaedic treatment, but as fate would have it, I’m walking with my two(2) legs today. I’m eternally grateful to God for the divine healing.
The accident affected my football career; as I can’t play professionally anymore, but it didn’t affect my ambition to raise young African footballers to train in Europe. Today, I’m proud to have achieved my ambition as the academy begins in earnest. You can actually achieve your ambition in others, this is the same spirit of philanthropy.
Don’t let your nights affect your ambitions!
Dr. Olakunle Churchill”
