150,000 Nigerians Die Of Cancer Yearly

That’s scary. The Chairman, Nigerian Medical Association, Kwara State branch, Dr. Kunle Olawepo, has said that no fewer than 150,000 people die of cancer annually in Nigeria.

This is just as the Founder, LEAH Charity Foundation, Mrs. Omolewa Ahmed, called for more investment in the fight against the disease.

They spoke at a walk organised by the two organisations in llorin, the state capital, to commemorate the World Cancer Day.

Olawepo, who defined cancer as a group of diseases that can affect any tissue or organ in the body, stated that, globally, cancer is the second leading cause of death after cardiovascular disease.
