Kabiru Alhassan is the poster boy for the motivational quote 'never give up'. He is a professional fire wood cutter with one arm.
The 38-year-old Nigerian man didn't allow his situation to limit him or resort to begging and has been able to find love as well as produce offsprings.

After the ugly landing, he was rushed to a traditional bone setter who helped fixed his broken arm.
Weeks later, the fixed arm would begin to rotten and thus, he was taken to the hospital where a doctor had it cut off.
The incident happened 22 years ago.
How his wife rejected her fiancé
Kabiru was full of praises for his wife of 13 years for accepting him despite his predicament.
In a video shared by @bbcnewspidgin on Instagram, the Kano resident recalled how his wife rejected her fiancé who had two hands when he indicated interest in her.
He said her lover had then gone far to the point of doing introduction but she still chose him over the man.
On the wood cutting business, the father of 4 said he makes N1500 to N2000 on some days and wishes to move to another line of business that wouldn't warrant him overusing his remaining hand.
