He said Ebou was admitted at the RVTH for months and discharged as he was getting better but it later started.

“I am a student and I am very young and want to further my education,” he added.

He said he was told by his doctors that he was not suffering from diabetes or cancer and that he could still get better without cutting the legs provided he got overseas treatment.
