Tiamiyu Olalekan Jimoh, 55, was a banker and businessman. He lost his job in the banking industry during the consolidation in the banking industry presided over by Professor Charles Soludo, then governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN.
Jimoh worked at the defunct Finbank from 2007 to 2011. But when he was sacked he decided to go into business. He ventured into the wood business, engaging in the buying and selling of wood in Ondo State. He was doing well in his new area of business, until tragedy fell.
On July 13, 2019, a tree branch fell on him at a village called Ese, at the border between Ondo and Ekiti States. This resulted in spinal cord dislocation. He was rushed to the University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Ondo State and was discharged on June 24, 2020. Though he was allowed to go home to his family, the impact of the accident has had a toll on his existence. He has been battling with it till this moment.
He spent 232 days at University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital, Ondo State before a spine consultant advised him to seek further treatment abroad and was referred to a hospital in India. The treatment in India is not what he could handle, particularly after the cost of treatment since 2019 and with the collapse of his business following the accident. He is, therefore, urgently seeking for assistance to raise a total of N12m for a life-saving surgery, which is going to be done at the hospital in India.
