Kanu Nwankwo Goes Through Surgery Again!!

Nwankwo Kanu AKA Papilo, the former Nigerian forward, has had corrective cardiac surgery in the United States, the head of the heart charity set up in his name said on Monday.

Onyebuchi Abia, the co-ordinator of the Kanu
Heart Foundation, said the rangy former Arsenal forward and Super Eagles captain was operated on at the weekend in Cleveland, Ohio, in the US mid-west.
“It was a corrective heart surgery,” Abia was

quoted as saying in several Nigerian
newspapers.

“He normally goes for a medical check-up
annually and it was during one of such checks
he was operated on to correct a heart-related
issue.

“He is now recuperating. I spoke to him on
Sunday.”

Abia did not specify the nature of the ailment.
Kanu, 37, first had heart surgery in the late
1990s to correct a faulty aortic valve.
The experience prompted him to set up a
foundation to build five hospitals in Africa to
treat undiagnosed heart disease and provide
surgery.

At the weekend, the Nigerian government named Kanu among the 100 most distinguished Nigerians during a ceremony to mark the centenary of the unification of northern and southern Nigeria.
