Collins Arikor is a young Nigerian lawyer born in the early 1990s with two younger brothers. He lost his mother to cancer in 2010 and father to tuberculosis in 2017. He graduated from the Faculty of Law, University of Benin, Benin City with a CGPA of 4.26 and won the prize of the Best Graduating Student in 2016.

Upon the conclusion of his mandatory National Youth Service in Onitsha in 2017, Collins started feeling pains in his leg and when the pains became unbearable coupled with multiple swellings, he visited the National Orthopaedic Hospital, Igbobi, Lagos where he was diagnosed with OSTEOSARCOMA, a malignant tumor of the bone.

Collins is a bright young Nigerian, who has consistently shown to be one of the hopes of this country in the academia. He has written and presented different legal papers adjudged as insightful by many eminent legal minds. In May 2018, Collins wrote a piece on the Statutory Duty of Nigerian banks to Employ Fit and Proper Persons, which was published on Lawyard.

The doctors have advised immediate treatment in India before the cancerous tumor spreads. The amount that is expected to be raised for his treatment in India, including the funds for his flight, his company and lodging presently amounts to Five Million Naira (N5,000,000.00). He is expected to undertake this treatment as fast as possible before the medical condition becomes life threatening.
