In a social media post in November 2023, Muonagor's cousin, Hon Tony Muonagor, posted a picture of him sitting next to the ailing actor on a hospital bed, stating that he wants the public to know the situation with his relative.

He later went into details of how the Nollywood legend had been battling kidney disease, diabetes, and stroke. He said though Muonagor had been managing his diabetes over the years and living his life.

Muonagor while recounting the fateful day when the stroke struck him explained that he had wrapped up filming on a movie set and was preparing to enter his car.

Since that day, Mr Muonagor had endured an arduous journey of recovery, spending months within the confines of a hospital to regain his health.
