Agoro had normal growth until he developed an ailment at the age of nineteen and when taken to a hospital, was diagnosed with Acromegaly, known commonly as gigantism, which made him grow vertically at a very rapid rate. Agoro unsuccessfully tried to combat the ailment and stood at 7’5″ which made him among the tallest people in Africa.
