No Child Should Ever Be Made To Go Through This Kind Of Pain – Gov. Dankwamba On The 12-Year Old Amputated

 Ibrahim Dankwambo, the governor of Gombe state who was represented by the state’s commissioner for Justice Abdulhameed Ibrahim, while visiting the 12-year old whose hands were recently amputated by some criminals ordered the Commissioner for Justice to ensure that the men are caught, arrested and persecuted. Dankwamba did not stop there as he also promised to settle the child’s medical bills. In his words; “Government has taken over the medical bills of the victim . The governor is really concerned and feels that , for no reason, should the boy be allowed to suffer any further. I am calling on you to be patient. Already , it has happened ; the only thing to be done is to see how we will assist him to be in good health,” he said.

“The police are investigating the matter and whoever is found culpable will face the law,. The governor continued saying; “I want to specially thank each and everyone of you who drew my attention to what happened to Young Zubairu.,” he said. “I read all your reactions and opinions on this platform and I heed to so many of them.

I’m currently out of Gombe but I have instructed the commissioner for Justice and Women Affairs to pay Zubairu a visit at the hospital where he is currently receiving treatment. I have directed the commissioner for Justice to ensure that the culprit of this dastardly act is arrested and prosecuted. I have also instructed my team to ensure all his medical bills are well taken care of. Henceforth, I will be responsible for his education. No child anywhere in the North or elsewhere in Nigeria should be made to go through this kind of pain on account of primordial beliefs. For kids like Zuberu to be able to aspire and as well acquire basic education in life, I personally converted my family house in Gombe to a school where the Almajiris will be given Quranic and conventional education simultaneously. May Allah bring him quick healing. Amen.”  Photo Credit: Getty
