Former entertainment journalist, Azuka Jebose, communicated via his Facebook page, quoting Sadiq Daba as saying ‘The leukemia has been arrested. I will be okay…’
Daba himself while replying to a comment wrote, ‘I am not dead nor dying!! God has been and will Always be faithful to me and my plight, because that is my covenant with Him !!!! My doctors have been wonderful and I am responding to treatment. …..my love and thanks to all those who have called to sympathize and empathize with me…..God bless you !!!!!!’
