He injected himself with a life-threatening oil, synthol, for years in a bid to achieve his dream body.
Valdir was reportedly warned by doctors that he might suffer nerve damage, muscle disfigurement or even face amputation if he doesn’t stop using the substance but he continued.
In 2016, Segator, who was a former construction worker, said he even wanted to get bigger.
“They call me Hulk, Schwarzenegger and He-Man all the time and I like that. I’ve doubled my biceps but I still want to be bigger,” he said.
He also dubbed himself ‘Valdir Synthol’ and shared pictures and videos of his physique on his Instagram page.
Sadly, Valdir has passed away after complaining about having shortness of breath. He was rushed to the North Emergency Care Unit (UPA) – a medical facility in the city, but gave up the ghost.
