He was reportedly born normal and lived healthily, but not long after getting married, he started developing some health issues that doctors could not salvage.
Strangely, his wife, who was equally alright, suddenly became deaf, a situation that made communication between her and the ailing husband difficult.
Fred’s condition was so bad that neighbours thought he was HIV/AIDS positive.
Being bedridden meant that he needed constant assistance from his deaf wife as he could not do things for himself.
Fortunately, their little daughter, who wasn’t attending school due to her parents’ conditions, served as the interpreter between them.
Fred, at a point, prayed to God to take his life because he had no hope of recovering, and his condition kept deteriorating.
