In a statement released by the Co-ordinator of the Kanu Heart Foundation, Pastor Onyebuchi Abia, the surgery was carried out during one of his normal yearly routine medical checks at the hospital following his 1997 heart surgery at the same hospital. And it was a success. Kanu has since left the intensive care unit, ICU, of the hospital and is now recuperating.
Pastor Abia said:
He'll be back home in a few days time. I spoke with him Sunday afternoon and he confirmed he's in a stable condition.Wishing him a quick recovery.
