3-Year-Old Boy Whose Eyes Were Plucked Out By Ritualists In Kaduna, Enrolled In School(Photos)



​Three year old Abubakar Usman whose eyes were plucked out by some ritualists in Zaria, Kaduna state in January this year, has finally been enrolled into a school. Journalist, Femi Owolabi, who has been following his story, shared an update on the boy. Read what he wrote after the cut…

And today, Abubakar Usman is officially enrolled in school! No, don’t thank me, and don’t shower me with your kind words. For every help that has come Abu’s way, my darling sister and friend, Bawo Ebigbeyishould get all the thanks, kind words, and prayers. “Oh my son is finally in school!” that’s Bawo, sharing her joy with me over the phone, when I informed her of the successful completion of Abu’s registration. I like to say again, that I’m totally disappointed in Governor El-Rufai of Kaduna State. The report I did on Abu got to Mr Governor, and the only thing he did? He called Abu’s father, telling him that he’s read the report online and that the government is still going to do something. Story! What Kaduna State Government cannot do in 7 months, we have done it in just a week. We have fixed Abu in a good school that would cater for his special needs in Zaria! What’s left to be done? Oh well, since Abu’s father is jobless at the moment and also, for easy transportation to and fro school for Abu, we are thinking we should get a tricycle (Keke-NAPEP) for the father. When he drops the boy off school, he can then use the Keke for commercial purpose, which in turn, will empower him financially. In Zaria, I gathered that the price of the Keke is something around N550, 000.
