Saraki’s Contribution Helps Ali Ahmadu, Six-Year Old Boko Haram Victim to Walk Again

A six-year old Boko Haram victim, Ali Ahmadu is back on his feet again after being flown to Dubai for corrective surgery on his spinal cord.

SIGNAL first broke the news of Amadu who was on a wheelchair for nearly four years, after being run over by Boko Haram terrorists in 2014. The story immediately generated public sympathy and attention. With the contributions by the Senate President, Dr. Abubakar Bukola Saraki, and his colleagues in the Senate, like Senator Dino Melaye, the funds for his surgery were raised through the Dickens Sanomi Foundation.

Speaking on this development, Mr. Igho Sanomi, stated that “Miracles do happen. For those of you who don’t believe in God, better believe in God now.

“This is Ali Ahmadu who was run over by Boko Haram terrorists in 2014. The boy and his pregnant mother were left under a tree for three days. The boy was bleeding from mouth and nose throughout the agonising days.

“Ali’s spinal cord was damaged and he couldn’t walk. For three years, help was needed. God made it possible after five to six hours of surgery and 48 hours in intensive care. Little Ali could walk again. This happened today to everyone’s surprise.

“It seemed unachievable but thanks to all our efforts. We have cause to rejoice. This is to say a big thank you from Ali’s family and GIPLC. Most especially our best regards goes to the President of the Senate, Dr. Bukola Saraki and his colleagues who set the ball rolling towards raising funds and awareness for the surgery,” Mr. Sanomi said.

Ali is currently back in Nigeria.
