Meet Abdullahi Rabiu: The Man with the Most Guinea Worms

It is difficult to reconcile Abdullahi Rabiu with the world record he is believed to hold. An athletic feat or sportsman’s event seems likely. But could this incredibly fit, healthy, energetic Nigerian really be the man known for having the most Guinea worms emerge from his body at one time? No one else is lining up to lay claim to his title or number: 84.

Watch this video to see the moment when Rabiu is reunited with Solomon Olukade, the Carter Center field supervisor who removed a record number Guinea worms from Rabiu’s body over a decade ago in Nigeria.
