Nigerians react as Senator Dino Melaye seek N19m funds to help boy paralysed by Boko Haram (photos)
Nigerians have come out to blast controversial Nigerian Senator Dino Melaye for coming out to publicly seek N19 million funds for boy who was paralysed by Boko Haram three years ago.
Legit.ng earlier reported that 6-year-old Ali Ahmadu was paralysed three years ago during the Boko Haram kidnapping of girls in Chibok, Borno state. He was just three years old when this unfortunate incident happened.
The boy was said to have ran out of the house and fell while running for dear life when a Boko Haram bike man rode on his back. Ever since little Ali has been unable to walk until he met an NGO who is ready to take him to Dubai for corrective spinal cord surgery.
