Unfortunately, at the age of two plus, he contracted the polio virus. Since then, he has been confined to a wheelchair.

Unperturbed by his physical limitation and propelled by his love for education, Dr Akpomie practically forced his parents to enroll him in school to acquire education. His parents duly obliged and enrolled him in a school close to the house and the boy never disappointed.
